Single Award, Double Award, Triple Award Sciences, Which is Better?

Many students and parents are confused when it comes to choosing the science subjects. In today’s tutorial, we are discussing:

  • The definition of each category of science.
  • What are you going to study in each science.
  • What kind of award you will be getting as your results.
  • And, the most popular question – which is better for you?

  1. My son was graded A A for coordinated science in November & now has received B’s for the separate sciences. Does the separates overtake the coordinated or does he have 5 igcses.

    • Hello Trisha,

      In order to complete IGCSE, your son has to choose 5 subjects (or 5 IGCSEs) from 3 different Core Group. The 3 Core Groups are: English Group, Science Group, Maths Group.

      At the moment, your son has just completed the subjects from Science Group.

      You may check on any university’s entry requirements, to understand what other subjects are required at IGCSE level.

      The triple science does not overtake the coordinated science. You may choose which to use in your future study application based on the requirement.

    • Hi Saif,

      There have been many candidates confirming that taking Double Award entitles them to take Biology and Chemistry in AS / A Level. You may want to confirm this with your school or the A Level college.

    • Hello Tracy,

      As far as we know, the triple science is required for engineering courses. Please write to the university and get the confirmation.

      However, if you are already taking Science – Combined (0653), you cannot combine this with Physics (0625), Biology (0610) and Chemistry (0620) in the same examination series.
