    I'm in Yr10 right now and ive been thinking quite hard recently...about my Science course. Right now i'm doing Double Science which lets be honest our main exams are just pastpapers. Ive been thinking about the real thing. I'm ok in Science I guess, back in Year 9 when I rarely revised I got D's and B's.
    I got
    D+ 1st Physics Exam
    B- 2nd Exam
    D+ 1st Chemistry Exam
    D+ 2nd Exam
    B+ 1st Biology Exam
    B- 2nd Exam
    Baring in mind I didn't revise much untill Biology when a dropped a set after my appauling Chemistry grades. Now in Yr10 ive so far got a B- from Physics, now we are doing Chemistry which I find the hardest out of the 3. To get to Triple I need to beat the above set which mostly gets A*'s and High B's. I'm scared that if I work hard and get to Triple Science i'll get a bad grade at the real thing due to Chemistry. However this Friday ive got a Chemistry exam if I get a low grade then I probably will do Double. I don't want to study any form of Science at A-level.

    I think if you want to study Science at A-Level, taking Triple Science is a good option to consider but in your case though, I'd say taking Double Science is the better option since you're not looking to study Science at A-Level.

    But that shouldn't mean you shouldn't revise for Double Science though :yep:

    Hope that helps

    If you don't want to do science at a-level, there's no point. I honestly think triple is a waste of time, it isnr required by the majority of sixth forms to do science and it is a lot harder than core in my opinion. If I could go back to year ten, I wouldn't have taken it if I knew what I know now.
