If you have the confidence and commitment then you can self study and just find an exam centre willing to accept you and pay them purely for the exam entry. If this is the case then you asre better taking IGCSE rather than GCSE as they don't require the centre to sign to say you've completed some practicals.

I’m 17 years old. What exactly is your question?
I did an IGCSE with a distance learning provider which booked my exam at an exam centre for me. I did it through Cloud Learn.

There are many private exam centres that offer GCSEs / GCSE resits to be taken, I know Tutors and Exams is one but I'm not too sure if there's one in Birmingham, the best thing to do is to re-search it, if there are none local you may have to travel longer to find another one.

Hope this helps :smile:.

What ones do you know buddy anything helps really. Do you think I should just do a double award in science I just find it frustrating you do all 3 sciences but come out with 2 gcses I read if you perform well you can still do a level science. But yes I just want to get into teaching it's a long road but trying still live with family nobody is really supportive but get it they mean well.

Great name makes me think of blue bears now. Any way, I want some guidance some help throughout it not super confident I just want to figure it out if worst comes to worst I'd have to do that. Trying to find a way to do a triple award can't find one at all if your asking why because I would be resitting all 3 sciences and getting 2 only out of it on a double award is a mood killer I want to get into primary school teaching I have 2 gcses jus math and English wanted to have 5 wow that sounds so silly I bet. If worst comes to worst I'll do the double award and maybe do another GCSE giving me 3 just trying to get into teaching...I come from a business studies background did it as a btec in college got D*D* which is 115 UCAS points and one semester in uni made me realise this isn't what I want in my life. Just been trying to pick myself up. Hear the triple award is so much harder even if I can't be a teacher I just want my science for me if that makes sense or not who knows. Hope your having a good day. Any tips or advice further is appreciated trying to enroll somewhere by September ideally for 2 years to have a better chance to get better grades can be online or class room based idm I hate online but I'm aware as a adult leader it's much harder trying to figure it all out feels a lot sometimes

It was good, I only retook Chemistry as that's the only one I needed.

Well, you'd either do the Double Award (which is all 3 sciences - weirdly), but you just do Paper 1 of Bio, Chem and Physics. I think Science Double Award will be fine for your requirements :smile:

Else, you'd need to do all three IGCSEs separately, and take a total of 6 exams (Paper 1 + 2 of all three)

Would you just do a double award in science? Just feels frustrating doing all 3 sciences and just getting 2 out of it. But maybe this is enough? Just hoping someone can help find me a place that let's me do a triple award looking for 2 years as 1 year just it's too much good to be honest. Jus try doing research everyday but finding it a pain. If i do a double award I would end up with 3 GCSEs if worst comes to worst I can do another GCSE making it 5 but yeah I'm jus thinking sure is hard. Hope you get a gd grade in chem

If you're wanting to do triple science because you plan to do A-Level afterwards, you don't need to because no colleges (that I know of) require triple science- combined is completely acceptable
