    Yeah I've already got an A* in core, I had a feeling that my additional grade would drag down the A*, but they are seperate right? Thanks for clearing this up my school does not know how to advise students properly.
    Did you get a GCSE certificate last year with it on? Or at least a statement of provisional results?

    Nope, this is what confuses me. My teacher told me I got 92.5% (A*) for the core year. he also said my grade can go down depending on additional year. This is where it confuses me cause I know I'm not on the applied science double award only the core and additional sciences. So I'm still not sure how it's awarded.

    I would like this cleared up as well, because my school seem to change their mind.

    In year 10, I did core science (2 exams in each science + ISA) and got an A*

    In year 11 I have done additional science and didn't get a thing and know I have done badly in the chemistry and physics exams (though I got an A in biology).

    Does this mean that my grade will look like: science (A*,grade this year) ?

    I really hope so because I was counting on that A* to make my science look reasonable.

    If you're doing GCSEs in core and additional (or additional applied) science (the only option available on AQA apart from triple science; there is no dual award anymore), then you can get 2 different grades.
    So if you got an A* last year, that's guaranteed.

    Yes. People in my class have grades like that.
