does doing CH1HP and CH2HP mean you have a full chemistry GCSE which therefore counts as one qualification or is it only part of core science GCSE meaning that it isn't an individual GCSE? the same applies for biology and physics, thanks.

I'm not certain of the answer, but in the absence of other replies, I've had a search.

Looking online for CH1HP suggests that this is the higher tier paper from AQA Science A GCSE. This paper, along with the equivalent for Biology and Physics each provide 25% of the marks for the Science A GCSE (the other 25% is for the practical).

CH2 etc each form 25% of the Additional Science GCSE.

To obtain an AQA Chemistry GCSE, you would also need to have taken the CH3 paper (and possibly a specific Chemistry practical assessment?)
(Edit: The CH3 paper can be taken with BL3 and PH3 and a practical assessment to lead to the Further Additional Science GCSE. Someone who had opted not to take Biology or Physics could instead take CH1, CH2, and CH3 plus the practical CH4 to get a Chemistry GCSE).

Hopefully someone else can provide a better answer.

No because if you didn't take CH3HP and you didn't do a Chemistry ISA with it, then it is not a full Chemistry GCSE. The same applies for the other subjects. If you took Core and Additional and thats what it says on your results sheet (if it does), then that is what you took.
