I had a question about the science results for GCSE. I was wondering whether they are given as one single grade or multiple ones, for example, your grade for Unit 1 exam, Unit 2 exam, Unit 1 Controlled assessment, etc. I joined my school in Year 11, so I missed the whole Year 10 curriculum, so I am expecting lower grades for my unit 1 exams, and I don't want it to affect my final grade so much.

If you did only unit 1 and 2 then you will get an additional science gcse, you should also get a core science gcse(based on just unit 1). If you did unit 1, 2 and 3 then you will get a physics, biology and chemistry gcse + core science. Hope that cleared things up.

Wait, so is the Additional Science GCSE only the Unit 2 exam or is Unit 1 and Unit 2 combined?

Yeah I think so too, I went on the Results Plus page and it had two sciences, "2SC01 SCIENCE" and "2SA01 ADDITIONAL SCIENCE"
