I am doing my 3 science exams next week and need to get a grade 6 in the biology paper, or get a 6-6 for trilogy science. I am doing Higher Tier paper. How many marks would a 6 be for just the biology paper, and how many marks all together in all 3 sciences would a 6-6 be?

hey!! it depends on your exam board!

i resat my combined science in november 2020, and even though i got 29/70 in a chemistry paper, i still got a 9 overall, which is why combined science is pretty great compared to triple, as if you don’t do great in 1 subject/ paper, you can make up for it in the others as it’s an average!!

for the 2018 AQA combined science (to give you a rough idea) you had to get 174/420 for a 6-6.

174 marks divided by all 6 papers is 29/70!
