    First of all, I'm new to this, so sorry if this is posted in the wrong place or anything.

    I just wanted some opinions whether I should take Triple or Double Science for GCSE, since I'm not really sure about any future careers that I'd like, but I would rather keep my options open. I'm currently not too interested in studying Physics or Chemistry, but I am interested in Biology, so I was just wondering whether it'd be worth taking Triple Science, or using the place for another GCSE instead (probably Geography or Art).

    Any helps appreciated, thanks! x

    If you're considering taking A-level biology, I would suggest doing triple. It will give you a head-start in the biology content, but the more important factor is chemistry. There is a fair amount of biochemistry in A-level biology and having at least a full GCSE in chemistry would help a lot.

    I would also strongly recommend triple. Although it seems a lot of work and may seem daunting it'll be worth it later on when little elements from these subjects are interjected into other subjects so you'll already know what's going on and not feel behind or as confused as you might have if you didn't plus I think it's good to just have some general background understanding of how science works in day to day stuff

    Triple is worth taking. It gets hard at the start but once you get the ball rolling it gets easier and widens your options.

    I'd say go for Triple. It will really help you if you want to do A Level Biology or Chemistry.

    From years 7 - 10, I hated Science. It was my worst subject and I usually got low levels. However, in Year 11, my current year, Science became my favourite subject. I do Double Science and I'm very angry that I didn't take Triple Science in Year 10. Take Triple!!!
