What other things do you study in triple science compared to double science? I am not 100% sure which i'm doing, and still and i'm in year 10. We have just started doing additional science in all sciences. I'm in EBAC, there are 2 EBAC groups. 1 is the best and i'm in 2.

FYI: when we got given revision guides EBAC 2 got offered the CGP core science and EBAC 1 got offered 3 cgp science subject books for all three sciences that makes me think I may have double science, i'm not sure though.

To make me work out what i'm doing...: what extra stuff do you do in triple science for the core science? Because i already learned all the core science because, like i said i now moved onto the additional science, thanks.

Double science students study core science and additional science

Triple science students study core science, additional science and extra extension units: b3, c3, p3 The content of extension science depends on your exam board

Since you have just started additional, you are most likely doing double as covering 6 units in a year is going to be very hard. To clarify you should ask your teacher

By the sounds of it, you are being entered for only core and additional, as the three revision guides cover an entire subject's individual units (while core and additional have Units 1 or 2 respectively of all three of the sciences).

As a brief response to your question, B3 covers things like the heart, lungs, global warming; C3 covers things like the periodic table in detail (including its origin), alcohols, esters; P3 covers more complex forces like moments, and medical uses of physics (i.e. lenses for glasses, X-rays).

It depends on what board you follow and in which school you are. For example if you do AQA, B3 C3 P3 is considered to be triple science. Where as in OCR, All the unit 3s and 4s are additional science which is double science. And in triple science you do unit 5s and 6s. Some schols do unit 7s as well. So it depends on what board you do and which school you go to.
