    I think you don't do anything about moles in double science at my school. We have covered them briefly in triple, so if you're worried about being behind, you could always read up a bit about them?

    At a disadvantage for what, A levels? If so then no you won't be at any disadvantage.

    The school I used to go to only offered double science. When I started the AS chemistry and biology course, I felt that I missed out a lot in biology (mainly because I hadn't covered the structure of the heart at all and that was the first topic we covered at AS), but you realise that it doesn't affect your progress at AS because the teachers recognise the fact that not everyone has studied triple science(at the school I currently go to anyway). I hardly ever felt behind in chemistry.

    Can someone explain this Double/Triple science thing is?
    Cos we just do individual sciences.

    You miss Mod 5, 6 of all 3 sciences.

    In Biology it wasn't too bad, it could be learnt easily (mostly bacteria structures, etc)

    In Chemistry it's moles, volumes, further equations, etc.

    In Physics it was quite a lot; equations of motions, momentum, optics, all of electricity, etc.

    They help in A-level Science but are not required.

    Good luck though...

    Edit: This is for OCR and I did GCSE's over a year ago, just finished AS...

    Triple is chemistry, biology and physics.
    Double is chemistry biology and physics but with a couple of topics missed out.

    There's no advantage I'd say that triple has over double in terms of preparing for A levels, the topics missed out can easily be understood if you want any chance of getting a decent grade at A level anyway lol.

    Modules 5 and 6? They're 2 out of the 3 modules in OCR Additional Science which we covered. :confused:

    Thanks for the responses everyone. I've looked on the specification for OCR GCSE Chemistry and it seems that some parts of modules 1,2,3 and 7 weren't covered in Double Science, though that might be because we covered Core Science with AQA and Additional Science with OCR. For AQA, the modules that weren't covered don't seem that obvious.
