    Applying for my exams

    I'm trying to book my exams for 4 IGCSE subjects which are ; English, Maths, Double Science ( Biology,Chemistry,Physics ) and Business studies. On the application it has a few different columns; Exam Board, Subject, Unit code and Unit title.

    The bit that is really tripping me up is the Unit title, ive asked my tutors which are helping me with my online studies and they all seem a bit confused as to what it actually means. Ive also gone to the person who is organising all the external candidates and she has told me, "It will give a description of the subject Biology F123 the title maybe Genetics, Maths simply could be Pure Maths 1 etc".

    Since its double science would the description be Science? Would it be complete Science ? would all the other subjects just be as simple as business studies ?

    If anyone could please give me a hand with this i would be eternally thankful as this is something i really dont want to get wrong, thanks in advance.
