    My school has changed to the new gcse system (where grading is now 9-1) and since each subject is becoming much harder they are convincing us ALL to take double award instead of the triple award for AQA science. My school is adamant that if you take the double award it will be easier to achieve the top grades and that it is already hard enough since a level topics are now on the new specification. However I don't understand how the triple award (which has more content) IS NOT going to be more beneficial in the future
    Anyone else's school changing to the new gcse? And if so, are you going to choose the double or triple award?

    You see, majority of teachers are like this. Please do triple science when you know you are capable of it. Yes, triple science is harder but if you want the top jobs in science like a doctor for e.g you have a much better chance of becoming one. Triple science also acts like a stepping stone to a levels and so a levels wont come too much as a shock than doing double science and then going on to a levels.
