    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?
    Thanks

    All schools are changing to the 9-1 GCSE. It is a government mandate from Ofqual, and all exam boards are changing to the new GCSE style. I think the teachers are stressing you too much. Triple science is going to be hard, but if you like science and are willing to work hard, by all means take it. I think they're just trying to ward off lazy people from taking it. It's going to be somewhat beneficial, especially if you take A Level sciences.

    IT DOESNT MATTER WHAT YOU THINK!!! READ MY STORY INSTEAD AND HELP ME OUT. THEN YOU WONT BE CURSED AND YOU'LL MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION.

    Help!! My friend grows bacteria!! ;( How am i gna live with him???
    THIS HAPPENED AT UNI, DUNNO WHAT TO DO!

    So basically yh... we agreed that myself and my other mate are going to move in with this friend (we'll call him X) and made this plan 2 month ago. However, we were told by X's flat mate that he is the flatmate from HELL!! he leaves food in the kitchen for 3 weeks to the point where blue bacteria grows on it like wtf.. he doesnt wash his dishes and when he does, he merely wipes it and puts it away... furthermore, he takes up 95% of the freezer... and the rest of the 5 flat mates have to share the rest of the fridge... when they confront X about this, he says hes busy and gets confrontational. X's flatmate has said we can move in with him, but we dont wana snake X as hes a cool guy. I cant deal with bacterial colonies in our kitchen... and as for the toilet, lets not mention that. And dont get me started on X's flatmates protein powder. He only said he can borrow some of the powder. A normal person would borrow a scoop or two max, he decided to use the whole 40kilo bag in one day... (exaggeration but it was finished lol)... someone help us wat shall we do. even if he promises hes gna not do it i dont wana get tied down in a year long rental contract. Appreciate the help. thanks
