    I do additional science (double) and I know I d two units per science and triple does three but what I don't understand is do we do the same paper for unit 1 and 2?? I need to know as soon as possible because I need to do past papers and I'm on AQA but I don't know whether I should find additional science past papers or if I should do past papers from each science separately I probably make no sense now I'm sorry but please help

    you have 3 exams for core, 3 for additional and 3 for further additional
    when i did it it was B1 C1 P1 , B2 C2 P2, B3 C3 P3 (2014)

    but im aware that with triple you could also just have biology, chemistry and physics together

    ask your school :/

    Yes they are the same papers. If you look at the front of the papers it will probably say both Biology and Additional Science.

    You do the exact same papers. Double award sit units 1 and 2 for each science and triple do the same plus a unit 3 for each.

    You will come out with 2 GCSEs, one in core science (made up of B1, C1 and P1) and one in additional science (made up of B2, C2 and P2).

    So you can use the exact same B1/2, C1/2 and P1/2 as Triple students for revision hope this helps.

    Basically you will do 2 out of three of the sections in Science and will do 2 out of three exams (for each science).
