    I unexpectedly had to move back into my old school however they do not have any spaces left in their triple science class. I was wondering if not doing triple science would effect my chances of getting into top Russel group universities such as Oxford, Cambridge, Birmingham etc... and doing a medicine or electrical engineering degree?
    Thanks.

    As far as I know, no affect of DA science. If you're concerned have a general look at the course requirements on UCAS

    triple science just gives you an extra GCSE and is harder than double science, it doesnt increase or decrease the chance of you getting into any kind of university.

    Excellent grades for Double Science are just as good as those for Triple Sciences. If you're going to be studying Science A-Levels the Unit 3 content is useful for the step up from GCSE to A-Level and it would be worth you having a look at it even if you're not taking Triple. Universities tend to look at the overall picture of your performance at GCSE (as long as you meet their minimum entry requirements) and so A-Level choices and results are much more important.
