Should I learn triple science content over the summer before A-Levels?

I’m studying combined science at GCSE (predicted 9-9) but I’m going to take Biology and Physics at A-level. I just wanted to know if I should try to learn the triple science content for biology and physics over the summer to put me in a better position for year 12 or if it’s not worth it?

Yes, defiantly, because my friend did combined and i did triple and there is some topics that she has absolutlly no clue about whilst the rest if the class has a good idea as to what is happening, so honestly yes i think you should.

Hi @evied21,

I think that's a great idea! I did Biology in both triple science GCSEs and A-Levels and there were definitely a lot of overlap and elaboration from what I learnt in GCSEs. A-Level Biology syllabus expands on the GCSE syllabus therefore since you mentioned your prediction of 9, and your willingness to revise over the summer I think you'll do exceptionally well for A-Levels 🙂

I recommend that you work alongside your specification points, as it will tell you exactly what you need to know. Maybe you can even compare it with the A-Level specification points and see if there are any similarities.

I'm rooting for you!

All the best,
