    Hi,
    I'm currently in the latter stage of my Gcse's and I am having self doubt in choosing physics for a-level. The main concern which I have is the fact that I am doing core and additional science (double not tripple) right now. Despite getting A's in both core and additional in my mock papers back in January I am questioning whether can I do it despite not doing tripple.if so what could i do in the summer holidays to catch me up to speed (revise the topics which i missed ?). If anyone had been in the same situation as me I would kindly like some advice.
    Thanks

    I think you can do it, but don't schools prefer triple science?

    You won't even need to revise the topics missed - I only did double award science and I'm doing bio and chem at A-Level now - as long as you're good at the sciences, you'll catch up to speed quickly enough

    Ahh don't worry about it too much OP.
    I did double science and is now doing Physics A Level. Everyone is pretty much on the same level in terms of work and you get up to speed with everything in the first week or so.

    You can do it, my friend does however she finds it quite hard and has had to read up on a lot of the triple science GCSE content and have some extra lessons. How good is your maths?

    From my specification, nothing in the triple module for physics was relevant for A Level anyway. I think you should read ahead for your AS spec over summer and start to teach yourself some topics, but don't waste your time on GCSE physics when you don't need to.
