For double science you do B1 and 2, C1 and 2, P1 and 2....what are the extra modules/units for triple? Is it just number 3 for all three sciences or is it 4+ aswell?
For double science this makes 12 exams if its modular and 6 in units (2 for each science)....how does this differ from triple?
When I did it, I did Physics(P1-P6), Biology(B1-B6) and Chemistry(C1-C6). I also did double science(core & additional) which is Core:B1, B2, C1, C2, P1, P2. Additional: B3, B4, C3, C4, P3, P4.
In total, you get 5 gcses for science. You sit 10 exams altogether.
If you're AQA, it's 12 exams.
C1a, C1b, C2, C3
B1a, B1b, C2, C3
P1a, P1b, P2, P3
If your doing OCR then you'd be doing all three sciences and get three seperate grades for them too. So you'd do:
And you'd do this in 2 sittings (,half in January and the other half in June).
You also have coursework which I absolutely hated!
Completely depends on the exam board, I did OCR Gateway which is what tammie94 above me has said. Normal double sciencers on OCR Gatweay do 1-4, triple do 1-6 : ) I agree the coursework can be horrible! Over 2 years you do 6 exams : )
AQA in 2010 was 3 exams plus an internally marked practical assesment (also known as an ISA) each for biology, physics and chemistry. You sat 9 exams total plus 3 practical assessments.
This may have changed with all the new specifications coming in though, so you'd be best asking at your school.
I found triple science very much a doss to be quite honest - we got double the lesson time for 1.5x the work so everyone's grades came out very high. I think the lowest set of grades achieved were ABB (keep in mind this was a below average state school). Obviously it depends on how your school works it, but if you're decent at science and the timing works well, it might be good for you.
Foundation caps your UMS score for that exam at 69 (which is a high C). So long as you've got good ISAs and the rest of your exams are good, there is nothing stopping you getting more than a C overall.
guess what i dont actually know! (LOL)
so how youm go find out from yourself!!! kabeesh?
thats wrong am afraid but the truth is its goes like this for TRIPLE:
GCSE Biology: B4, B5 B6
GCSE Chemistry: C4 C5 C6
GCSE Physics: P4 P5 P6
Only 9 exams in total.[/QUOTE]
however, core sience goes likes this:
GCSE BIOLOGY: B1 B2 B3
GCSE CHEMISTRY: C1 C2 C3
GCSE PHYSICS : P1 P2 P3
