Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
My DS1 despite doing literally no work achieved a B in the double "additional" science GCSE today (P3 C3 B3) what has he passed because I understand that there is some course work and another exam (P4 C4 B4 I think) in the summer.
They rang a bell with me as DD2 did ocr!
It seems so complicated. What exactly does additional science mean is half way between triple and core I'm assuming. I was shocked how basic the level is no wonder the jump to AS is so huge.
You can have three sorts of science GSCEcore on its own is one GCSEcore and additional is two GCSEsbiology, chemistry and physics is three GCSEsEach one just adds more modules but they aren't any more difficult.
