No but it helps. Just make sure you do maths and physics (further maths also helps). Try and do at least 2 sciences.

To be honest with you, most universities don't care what GCSE's you have, as long as you have english and maths, and then another 3 subjects at grade 4/5. When applying to uni, all I was asked for was if I had passed my english and maths and that was it. In this case, take whichever version you think suits you, as the same applies to college really. As long as you have those two main ones, it shouldn't matter what else you take.

Just saying whilst unis dont care whether you take triple or not, it might help you if you would like to take aevel physics. Whilst you can do combined science and do alevel sciences, it might be more difficult at the beginning

Like others have said, it is not hugely important whether you do triple science or say additional science instead. Universities are far more interested in your A Levels.

If you think you will mainly study the sciences for your A Levels then it could help you in terms of progression into you future studies in Yr 12/13. As long as your GCSEs include reasonable grades in Science, be it triple or not then you should get by okay

My application to an Engineering degree ultimately hinged on the grade I scored in A Level Physics - my other A Levels were fine. I am told it is quite rare that University admissions officers decide to accept/reject an application based on GCSEs. (Although I am unable to speak for the highest Universities such as Oxbridge).

All you'd have to do is say that your school didn't offer triple science.
