Hello everybody, so I've been debating for some time as to whether to do triple science, the main benefit is that It's an extra GCSE. The main drawback is the increased workload which could effect other GCSE's. I think that I can handle it seeing as I got the 4th highest in the year for all the science's. It's just that if I worked equally as hard on double then my other GCSE's would benefit. Any advice?

If you plan on taking a level science, I'd recommend you take triple science. But here I am with no wishes to label a cell again after this month doing triple science, and I don't mind it too much. Science is probably my worst, but the workload's not impossible if you keep on top of it (which I never really did but oh well)

i find triple science easy -i think you only have to learn like a few topics extra compared to double science but you get a whole another gcse. also if you do double science you have to learn most of the specification as well as another subjects specification. also with triple science the grades are seperate so if you dont do as well in one science it doesnt affect your whole graade

If your thinking about doing any of the science's after school, definitely do it. Whilst it usually isn't compulsory, it makes it significantly easier (at least to start!)

How does your school do triple? I have an extra 5 lessons a week for it (it was a normal option rather than an extra option) and it has been fairly easy. We finished Chemistry in March and Physics and Biology at the start of April so wasn't a rush to get it finished. I do know other schools try to fit triple into normal lessons without giving you more lessons which I do think it stupid.

I took triple science, it's not bad, and I really enjoyed the physics and bio, its was very interesting, chem wasn't and has never really been my thing but if you are thinking of doing a science degree it will look good on your application (even if it's only an IGCSE's, you'll be better off than not having it) It's just good to broaden you knowledge of how the world works, physics, bio and chem are all interlinked and you need all the pieces of the puzzle to see the bigger picture. So go for it imo

The same amount of lessons, I guess they assume the people who do triple science are fast learners as a pose to hard workers.

I m currently in YR10 and am doing triple science. I agree that there is a workload but at the end of the day I personaly enjoy science.
So do it if u can take on the workload as well as work hard in it as well as balancing all the other subjects

I would, honestly if it’s a subject you’d even consider doing for a level, you’ll thank yourself later for taking it because it’s much harder taking a level from double. To be honest, it doesn’t even feel like one big science, they split it into physics, chemistry and biology so each science will feel different. I personally find that better than double where the 3 subjects just feel the same
