    Ok so it's 2 GCSEs and my understanding is, each GCSE comprises of 3 papers (Bio, Chem and Physics), therefore each paper should be wortkh 33.3% right?

    However the spec says each is worth 16.7% ??????????????

    It's probably 16.7% of the whole grade. Even though it's 2 GCSEs I think the grade should be shown as 7-7 (or as other numbers depending on what you get). This would be a change from before where core science and additional science would've been separate.

    I've moved your thread to Maths, science and technology academic help where hopefully you'll get more answers In future, it's best to select the subject from the list here and create a thread in there instead :yep: If you want to see where threads belong, check out this thread
