    Chemistry and Biology would be necessary. Physics would be recommended

    I read somewhere that if you are not continuing a science for ib, that you are required to take it for the igcse. Is it true?

    Quite honestly I am taking IB without taking the IGCSEs so I do not know.

    However since for the BMAT you need physics knowledge that is up to the level of IGCSEs it would definitely be beneficial to do triple science in IGCSEs.
