Just that really our private secondary school sets kids for science at this point in year 10 and a third only do double science meaning they can get 9 GCSEs rather than 10. My DS is someone that struggles with science so is doing double but taught for same amount of time as those doing triple so should I be getting worried he’ll only get 9 GCSEs ? I assume it’s better for him to try and get 2 good science grades rather than 3 not so good ones. Advice welcome
A lot of State/Academy schools sit 9 GCSEs these days so I wouldn't worry. I looked into it when I heard DD would "only" be sitting 9 but realised it was all ok. Gives her a much better chance of getting great results in my mind. She didn't have to drop anything she really wanted to do so 9 seems perfect for her (triple science included).
