There is a slight difference in how challenging they are but if you can grasp Core then you should be fine with additional, as for ISA's they are tricky but if you have the rightr mindset and revise the right things then they are piece of cake.

I'm sure you will do well because with a lot of things all it requires is a little bit of hard work to get good results and Additional science is not that much harder than core.

Core science is the 1st section which contains 6/7 topics of each science. Additional science is the next section which contains another 6 or so topics for each science. It isn't dramatically different or harder than core science but the topics go into a little more detail and are more interesting than those of core science. Let me know if you need any guidance on the ISAs or more information- I do AQA triple science

I'm homeschooled too so here my way of thinking it...

Science is built up on structure... in order to do the next level you got to do the one below also as you are homeschool I would not recommend you doing GCSE Science do IGCSE no different just no coursework as A-Level reforms are no coursework in 2-3 years so you would fly into it.

Combined Science (Single-Award) - Basics once you got a C you " unlock " additional (level 2) or if you get A* you " unlock " triple (level 3 of GCSE not level 3 in qualification) where it gives you an introduction to A-Level Biology, Chemistry and Physics.

Search up.. Wolsey Hall Oxford they are a brillant homeschool help you and guild you (no coursework) just exams.

Hope this helps.
