Hi, I was wondering what's the difference between Triple and Double Award Science for iGCSE's?
Single and Double award covers Biology, Chemistry and Physics in one qualification. You'd study much more content for the double award so that means the awarded IGCSE is equivalent to 2 IGCSE/GCSE qualifications and a double grade is awarded. The 'triple award' is even more content and is actually 3 separate IGCSE, one each in Biology, Chemistry and Physics. Each subject is given an independent grade.
You'll get a rough idea of the overlap/differences here

and the detailed differences in content by looking at the specifications.
