    It depends on the policy of the grammar school, so ask the one(s) you are interested in. At my 6th form you have to get a B in the Science you want to study at A level or an A in Additional Science, but the people who have taken separate sciences do not get priority.

    If you only take 1 Science GCSE it is called science. If you take a second then that is called Additional Science. If you take 3 Science GCSES then you can either do Biology, Chemistry and Physics or Science, Additional Science and Further Additional Science. (The exams are the same, just parcelled up into different GCSEs.)

    BTEC SCience has fewer exams and more coursework. Schools push the less able students towards BTEC Science instead of GCSE Science.

    Check the entry requirements in the prospectus.
    If they do, they have to try and teach everyone as much as possible, but will help those who need it most(those with double).
    Core science is single. BTEC is like GCSE, but with more coursework and no exams.
