    I have GCSE exams in May/June and I have barely studied science for my GCSE due to not being in School, is it possible for me to teach my self GCSE science at home in less than three months? If yes, how?

    Also if it is possible to teach my self GCSE Science at home in 3 months, should I do core science, double science or triple? I'm asking this as I'm currently only studying 3 other GCSE's not including science...

    of course it is!
    It can be learnt within a month if you put the work in.
    Use MyGCSE Science and CGP revision guides.
    Once you've revised everything complete as many past papers as you can.

    You need about one week each for bio, chem, physics to learn. Make concise notes (take about 2 days) read them about 5 times a day.
    Start past papers in 3 weeks after learning content, do like 2/3 a day.
    Mark them and make corrections
    That will take you about a week, maybe longer.
    Add things you got wrong to your notes either on the back of the page or via a post it note
    Personally everything i didnt know i wrote out in red pen as new notes and added it to the back of the pile.
    You will be fine, honestly.

    Papers are KEY! But they cannot be done without knowing content.
    Do all papers to time.

    Sorry this is brief but I need to log off.

    Consider after school sessions or tutoring (can be a friend) as the teachers/tutor can help and explain better than only a textbook.
    Still, it is possible to do at home - especially science. Get specifications that give you every point you need to know for the exam.
    Unless you want an A-level/apprentiship/BTEC that needs science - I would consider just core in such a short period of time.

    Hope this helps, Message me if you need anything and I will reply ASAP.
