For combined science at GCSE, are the two grades given as an average grade for paper 1's and for paper 2's or do they just accumulate all 6 papers and give an two averages?

The grades on individual papers are only an indicator and have no actual value. To calculate an overall grade they add the marks up you obtained in all papers in all Sciences and then compare that to the grade boundaries overall, so (for instance - boundaries for Edexcel Combined Science (Higher) in 2019):

(Max 360).
More than 264 - 9-9
249 to 263 - 9-8
234 to 248 - 8-8
219 to 233 - 8-7
etc

(Obviously, if you take separate Sciences then they add up all your Biology marks to find your Biology grade, your Chemistry marks for a Chemistry grade etc, but for Combined Science they add the lot together)
