    So in core science you study B1, C1, P1. In additional I believe you study B1&B2, C1&C2 and P1&P2 is this the same for double award.....Am I right to think I don't need to do B3,C3,P3.

    Thanks in advance

    If you are doing core and additional science you do P1, P2, C1, C2, B1 and B2. In the end of this you get 2 GCSE's in science P1, C1 and B1 are three papers which makes up your grade for core science. You than sit P2, C2 and B2 which makes up your grade for additional science. If your doing core and additional you will be sitting 6 papers in total.

    For the triple science you do B3, C3 and P3 which gives you 3 individual GCSE's in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. You would do 9 exams in total if this is what you are doing. B1, B2 and B3 = Biology grade, C1, C2 and C3 = Chemistry grade and P1, P2 and P3 = Physics grade.

    Core and additional and the double award is the same thing it is only phrased differently.
