    I am currently doing IGCSE triple science. Is it possible to do the higher paper for biology and physics, but do the foundation paper for chemistry?

    I would recommend doing higher chemistry as it would be easier to get a C and pass than foundation however its worth asking your teachers just in case as they would be the one who is putting in the exams, hope that helps

    Okay, thank you so much! How comes it is easier to get a C in the higher paper? Shouldn't it be harder?

    The grade boundaries tend to be easier on the higher papers as the grades range from D to an A* whereas on Foundation the grade boundaries consist from G to C, therefore to pass a foundation you would need to get nearly all the answers to the questions correct so it would put too much pressure on you. http://filestore.aqa.org.uk/over/sta...2014.PDFScroll down to chemistry, obviously grade boundaries have changed over years but not massively
