Your grades seem to be alright, and it looks like you have potential. However, whether you can do triple science or not depends on whether your teachers want you to. If you have a good work ethic, and have been performing consistently well above your class, then there may be a possibility. If they do not think that you are the right fit, try and persuade them, by working harder to get atleast one grade above in all your subjects in your next set of exams. It depends on you and your teachers. If you were disappointed with any of your grades, remember that your grades can improve massively in just one term, if you put the effort in!

possibly, would be good to be getting at least grade 6s in all of them but grades aren't always the most accurate predictor of how you'll do anyway. it'd be good to talk to your teachers about this and see what they think as well if you do end up doing higher combined it's not the end of the world as you'd still be able to do science a levels if you get the grades :yep:

Hi,

I am doing Triple Science for GCSE''s but I don't which revision guides to buy. I want to buy revision guides of CGP and my exam board is AQA.
I have heard that you have to buy books separately for biology, chemistry and physics for Triple Science.

These are the books that I am looking at recently:

Biology: https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/secondary...revision-pract
Chemistry: https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/secondary...e-revision-pra
Physics: https://www.cgpbooks.co.uk/secondary...revision-pract

Please tell me if these are the right books I should be buying. If not can you please tell me which books to buy specifically for Triple Science as I am doing it.

Those look alright. Make sure to check if your school sells revision guides or not, because you may be able to buy them from school and get them cheaper. I think you should get the matching workbooks, because they will be very useful for application-style questions.

It's entirely up to the way your school does things so ask them - also the grades awarded in Year 9 vary a lot between schools so one person's experience may not be relevant to you. For instance, my school only gives 7s in Year 9 to the top few students. and yet everyone does separate sciences.

You should need to buy anything - if you would benefit from a revision guide then schools buy them in bulk more cheaply.

Different schools do things differently, so all I can suggest it that you tell your school you'd like to do separate sciences and work as hard as you can to demonstrate your commitment and ability.
