I'm starting my GCSEs soon and I'm a bit confused/have a few questions

How long do your GCSEs last? (How long does exam week last?)

When I went on the AQA website and looked at maths past papers, I saw there were different units. Eg one paper for algebra etc. Does this mean that I will have numerous maths exams for GCSE?

Also, can I do dentistry with double science, and which grades to I need in all subjects for dentistry

Thank you :-)

How long your actual exams are spread over varies, but it can be about a month.

Ask your teachers - how many exams you will have to sit depends on which syllabus you will be studying, and they will be able to tell you which syllabus and how many exams you will sit. You'll likely have more than one for subjects like English, Maths and Science, and some others.

Yes, you can do dentistry with double science if you will be accepted onto the relevant A level courses with double science (which I think they should do). GCSE requirements vary, look them up here or on individual uni websites There will also be information on which subjects you need, but in general it appears to be Chemistry and Biology.

Thank you I know my exam board is AQA. Have you done your GCSEs? And if so how long did all the exams take to finish?

I'm doing my second year of A levels, so I can't remember much about my GCSE exam timetable really but mid May to mid/late June is pretty common I think. It looks like you'll be sitting three exams for Maths from what AQA have, but the easiest way to know for sure is checking with teachers
