    When you choose your GCSE Options, do you still take biology, chemistry & physics as normal or do you have to choose whether to do Triple or Double Science. I am top set for Science, English, Maths and PE. My school say that you have do triple science if you are in top set but I still do not know if you have to pick Triple or Double Science or just study Biology, Chemistry & Physics like you do in KS3.

    If you don’t pick triple Science, you’ll be doing double science. However with being in the top set for science, I would recommend giving triple science a try. (double science is the first 2 units of biology, chemistry and physics and triple is all of it, if I remember correctly.)

    The only difference between triple and double is the amount of things you learn for each topic, so if you choose double science you'll still study bio, chem and phys just less of it than if you were to do triple, if that makes sense? If you're too set I'd try triple because you can decide right up until the day if you want to sit the triple or double science paper, well you can in my school anyway

    That's not the case in the new specs - the Combined/double papers are completely different than the Triple papers. It's not like in the old spec when Triple students just did the B/C/P3 exams on top of Unit 1 and 2.
