    I'm in year 11 doing triple science and to be honest it's not *that* bad. At my school triple is the norm and only about 20 people in my year do double which is so that they could take another subject with it. I only took triple because most people were and I didn't know what else to take so I thought I may as well keep my options open. There is a fair amount more content to learn though. Also apparently the new GCSE is harder and you need to know some things in more detail than before. Oh and no controlled assessments now, which means more time spent learning the course. Just my thoughts anyway.

    I wouldn't say it is hard, expect for chemistry(personally), just a lot to learn, if you keep revising now and go further than your class, you should be able to smash your exams.

    ffs - I typed in triple science, clicked on this question, read through it and thought to myself: "Wow! This person is exactly the same as me, and is considering the same subjects. I'll write a comment." - This person is me.

    im not sure about the new exams. but personally i found core, B2, P2, P3 really easy (yet to do B3 and finish C3), annothing thing to keep in mind is that with the new exams you have A LOT (and i mean A LOT) of formula's to remember.

    In year 11 now doing triple sciences and it's honestly not difficult atall (straight A* in mocks)
    Just do practice papers, read the textbook and write notes if they help!
    I'd highly recommend triple sciences as it's manageable and respected - especially if you'd be interested in persuing science(s) at A-level or Uni

    It's not that hard tbh. A lot of the topics kinda cross over with the topics you cover in core and additional, just with a few extra details and some new concepts. Once you get your head around it, it's definitely not hard and it is genuinely more interesting than just core and additional

    We do some of our GCSEs some years early and for me this was:

    Core Science - Year 9 (B)
    Additional Science - Year 10 (A)
    Triple Science - Year 11 (Still in progress)

    My teachers tell me that we are lucky as most other schools have to do additional and triple science in the same year so I guess she is right. Triple science is doable if you work hard for it - so I suggest you go for it!

    My mocks aren't the best right now (1st Mocks: D, 2nd Mocks: B) but I hope to repeat last year or even better.
