Hi there, I have heard many people telling me that triple science contains 9 papers, three for biology, three for physics and three for chemistry. I wanted to know if that was true because other people tell me that you only do 6 in total. Could a informed person who has done triple science ideally this year or last year please help answer this question. My exam board is AQA. Thanks.

I did triple science this year and I did 9 papers, 3 for each subject. The people who did double science did 6 papers.

For 9-1 it's 6 papers regardless of whether you take combined or triple.

I did 6 last year, but I didn't do 9-1. It varies per exam board but it'll be either 6 or 9. What exam board do you sit?

it is actually for both. But triple science students have more content and therefore the exam is longer (1hr 45mins) and has more marks

Old specification was 6 for double ([B/C/P][1/2]) and 9 for triple (B3, P3, C3), as well as controlled assessments which constituted 25% of each of the GCSEs.

On the old spec for triple science you did 9 papers whereas for 9-1 you do 6 which are 1h30min each.
