    It will depend on your sixth form, but usually you don't have to have done triple science to do science A levels. I would highly recommend doing triple, however, as this will put you in a much better position to start A levels. If you want to go into medicine I would recommend doing triple.

    i have already chosen to do double science so will that mean if i choose to do science A LEVEL then i have to learn a bit more.

    Triple science goes into more depth than double, so I imagine that yes there will be a bit of a discrepancy between what you go into year 12 knowing and what someone who took triple takes into year 12. If it was a huge issue then they wouldn't allow double scientists to take A levels, though, so it's not an unpassable obstacle. Perhaps you can do a bit of work in the summer after year 11 to catch up a little, or at least ensure that you don't forget what you learnt in double. Some sixth forms give their students 'bridging work' over summer to cover the gap between GCSE and A level (regardless of it they've done double or triple), so something like that might help.
