To do physics for a-level you have to get BB in sciences or a B in physics,also a 6 or above in maths. i got a C in core science but a B in additional. i got Bs in biology,chemistry and physics and a 7 in mathematics. did i get in? and could you please explain the requirments to get in as i think it means you have to get 2Bs in core and additional or a B in core and a B in physics itself,this also includes the 6 above in maths as well to take the subject...please explain.

The 'or B in physics' means for people who did 3 science GCSEs, in separate chemistry, biology and physics, not the physics parts of core and additional science. As the requirements are BB in core and additional science or B in the separate physics GCSE, you didn't get in as you got CB.

Did you get a B in the physics section of core because if so you might be able to persuade them although the requirement is there for a reason. Got a friend got an A* in gcse physics and maths and he scrapped a C at physics as level and hated it.

Not everyone does triple science, you didn't. Triple science is where you do an additional unit at GCSE for chemistry, biology and physics and you get 3 GCSEs from it, instead of the 2 for core and additional. The 3 GCSEs are titled chemistry, biology and physics instead of just core and additional science.

Where it says B in physics, this means for people who did the 3 science GCSEs and got a B in physics. You got a B in the physics part of your GCSE but you didn't get a B overall in the core GCSE, so you haven't met the requirement.

No, you did a unit in each of chemistry, biology and physics, not 3 GCSEs. Imagine doing the same amount of content you did in year 11, all over again but with different content, as well as doing everything you already did, that's what triple science is. You did double science as you have core and additional, people who did triple science don't have GCSEs called core and additional science, their GCSEs are called chemistry, biology and physics.

Triple science is unit 3.
