Hi Guys,How's it going?
I'm currently taking core and additional science for GCSE the exam board is AQA I was just wondering how the Grades are shown on the GCSE results paper?
will i be able to see my biology chemistry and physics results?
will it just be shown as a single grade?
I would really appreciate an example.
Thanks.

It will be shown like

Core Science - UMS - GRADE
B1 - UMS - GRADE
C1 - UMS - GRADE
P1 - UMS - GRADE
ISA - UMS - GRADE

Additional Science - UMS - GRADE
B2 - UMS - GRADE
C2 - UMS - GRADE
P2 - UMS - GRADE
ISA - UMS - GRADE

If I attain an A in C1 and C2, say, I don't get an A overall? By the way, I'm doing Chemistry A-level, and as I'm currently doing Double Award Science, would it be wise to revise C3 in the summer?

It depends what you get in other units.

I would say it wouldn't hurt to watch some A-level/C3 videos over the summer but I wouldn't buy the revision guide.

I deeply regret picking Double Award over Triple.

Don't worry about it, just try and get A*s in both your science qualifications.

Thank you for your support. A couple more things though. If I pass Core Science and fail Additional, or vice versa, I don't get the same credit, do I? Core and Additional Science count as two GCSEs, right? If I achieve A/A in C1 and C2, but fail the other modules (i.e. B1, P1, B2 and P2), will I still be welcome to take Chemistry A-level?

You wouldn't be able to take Chemistry A-level. The demand for double science is smaller than that of triple and if you cannot take the workload the sixth form would be suspicious on whether you will be able to take an A-level in a science.

If you pass core but fail additional, you will only get one qualification.

If you want to do chemistry A-level, you should get BB minimum.

Thanks for you help.
would it be the equivalent of 2 GCSEs?

I'm doing this course as well. Last Year on results day I got my core science Grade and it was presented like this:

Core Science: UMS OVERALL GRADE
Biology UMS GRADE
Chemistry UMS GRADE
Physics UMS GRADE
ISA UMS GRADE
