    Hi all,
    In year 10 my expected grades were As and Bs. Unfortunately however, one trip after another and I wound up with a D grade.

    My teachers allowed me to do the additional, but they also told me that my additional science grade will effectively replace my core science grade as it's a "step up" from core GCSE - is this true? I asked if I could retake it sometime, but my teachers pretty much said no as It would just be too much work.

    No they are separate GCSEs and you will have 2 separate grades, the Core Science and the Additional Science.
    It is possible to carry forward the controlled assessment and just re-sit the Science exams for a new grade..

    They are two separate grades ^

    What your teacher probably meant is that your additional science grade will take precedence over your core one as it is considered to be the harder one and the one needed for college entry requirements
