Basically im 19 and doing my GCSEs for the first time as I left school when I was 14. I'm doing Biology and English this year and was hoping to do maths chemistry physics next year. Now I've realised that no where in Southampton or Hampshire does chemistry or physics at GCSE for adults... My best bet it seems after calling a local college is doing additional science, I think she actually called it combined science aka double science. This would allow me to do chemistry physics and biology at A level. My question is if I'm already doing biology and then do combined science does my biology GCSE even count?. Will university's not consider it so I'll basically only have 4 GCSEs as a lot of the content will be overlapping.

I'm going to ring the college again tomorrow and find out from university's as well but just need some peace of mind now.

Surely this can't be the case but I'm stuck stuck between doing double science for free at a local college or paying £600 for chemistry and physics IGCSE.

Help would be much appreciated and if anyone does happen to know of any colleges in Hampshire that do chemistry physics please let me know!.

A biology GCSE and additional/combined science GCSE are separate and counted a 2 GCSEs. My sister did core science and got a GCSE in it and then did Physics, Chemistry and Biology the following year and got 3 GCSEs in those. So, she got 4 GCSEs for science, so yours will count for two.

Great thanks so double science is 2 GCSEs right? so biology and double science would be 3?? Or is additional science or combined science not double science so in this case it would be 2 one for biology one for combined science?

Thanks for the reply !
