These are only the dates for the exam board you are studying with, other exam boards will also have GCSE science exams in those sessions but not necessarily the Additional Science exams.

Check you know what exam board you are studying (probably AQA, Edexcel or OCR if you're in England) and look on their website for past papers to have a go at. The markschemes with the answers will also be there. Buy the CGP guides https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/Student if you can - Amazon and W H Smiths both sell them.
