    Hello, I a currently doing triple science as one of my GCSE options and I have a question: At my school we have to do core science as well as triple if we choose it. So basically I am doing c1,b1 and p1 twice, once in core and once in triple.
    Does this mean I am going to get 3 GCSEs or 4 GCSE?

    4 I think. You will get:
    1) Biology
    1) Physics
    1) Chemistry
    and 1) Core science
    .... I am also just starting triple science but at my school it was an option and if you take it you don't have to do core. It seems strange that your school would do that.

    My school did that bull****; yes you get 4 GCSEs.

    Personally I had my head of Science withdraw me from Core

    Thanks guys. I just wanted to clarify.

    Hmm. I've never heard of that before. My school just forced the top three classes to do triple science in year 9 . I didn't mind that much, and we had the choice to just do double science in year ten however that would mean doing a year again.
If you won £30,000, which of these would you spend it on?
