My GCSE Science video dashboards list the content for Paper 1 and Paper 2 in two separate columns, to help students focus their revision on the relevant papers at the right time during the exam season.
Each exam features Foundation tier and Higher tier papers. Foundation tier is designed for students who are aiming for grades 1-5, and Higher tier is designed for students who are looking for grades 4-9. Based on guidance from school, students must choose whether to sit Foundation tier or Higher tier (and they must then take all six papers at the same tier).
Edexcel GCSE Combined Science revision materials outlined in the information on where to find support can be used. However, it is important to note all other Combined Science GCSEs currently offered **(not IGCSE) are DOUBLE award so use this Combined Science Guide to avoid doing the additional material covered in the double award (2 GCSE) courses.
All the past exam materials (including all past papers for reading, writing, and listening papers, their accompanying audio files, and the speaking cards used by examiners during the speaking exam) can be found on the exam board websites. These are accessible below according to their respective boards. OCR is not listed as they chose not to offer language GCSEs once the old specification came to an end.
How hard is it to get a 9 in GCSE History?The grade boundaries for a 9 in History vary year on year, as well as between boards and papers, however, the 2022 exams indicate that a mark of around 75 per cent or higher will receive a 9 in the History GCSE.
This qualification is linear with three question papers to be taken in the same examination series. Linear means that students will sit all their exams at the end of the course. For full details of assessment, please see the specification.
The grades are not separate. A double grade is calculated at the overall qualification level. The marks for all the papers will be added together, and 17 grade boundaries (9-9, 9-8, 8-8 through to 2-1, 1-1) will be set on the overall marks.
In the combined science qualifications, students will not be graded for each individual science. Marks from all the combined science papers will be added together and grade boundaries (for example, 5-5) will be set at the qualification level. Higher marks on one paper or on one of the science content areas can therefore compensate for lower marks on another. In your example, it is the case that better performance on the biology papers/questions could compensate for poorer performance on the physics papers/questions. The overall grade will be determined by the total number of marks achieved.
It's best to think of this as a double grade rather than two separate grades. The marks for all the combined science papers are added together, and the double grade boundaries (9-9, 9-8, 8-8, 8-7, 7-7, etc through to 2-2, 2-1, 1-1) are set on that total mark. Students taking combined science won't get grades for the separate sciences or separate papers.
if 6th forms are looking for one specific grade atleast or above in the chosen science then how do we find out what we have achieved in just that one science as double award get one grade all together?
Combined science is the same size as two GCSEs, which is why students will get a double grade. Students will therefore count those double grades in their 'total' so in the example provided the student would have achieved four GCSEs at grade 4 and above. Colleges will, of course, have their own requirements for entry.

Some of the software schools and colleges have used to render results for distribution to candidates has removed the dash, so it may be that your daughter got a 4-3. The best thing to do is to contact the school/college that issued the result and ask them to double-check it with the exam board. We have aligned a 4-4 with a C grade, and a 4-3 is just below this, but you can see how the A* to G scale compares with the 9 to 1 scale here, and where all the science grades sit in comparison with each other here.
Some of the software schools and colleges have used to render results for distribution to candidates has made the combined science grade look a little odd in places. Some have removed the dash and it looks like some may have produced an average result across the double grade awarded. The best thing to do is to contact the school/college that issued the result and ask them to double-check it with the exam board.
Hi Will the results for foundation and higher papers in 9-1 Science be published separately anywhere? I'm interested in comparison of say the grade 4s obtained on a foundation paper compared to the higher tier paper.In addition will Ofqual publish the grade distribution to enable comparisons between exam boards?Thanks
Hi Charlie, combined science is a reformed subject and is worth two GCSEs, graded 9-9 to 1-1 (so it is both on the numerical grade scale and the grades are double) so it's not correct for a student to get a single D in combined science. I suggest you check the subject and the grade with the school, and ask the school to check these details with the exam board.
Hi Kelly, we have found that the software some schools/colleges have used to render the results for distributing to candidates has removed the dash from the double grade, so your daughter probably did get a 4-4 by the sounds of it, especially as it appears the exam board has confirmed this. This is a double grade and is indeed worth two GCSEs. Further education institutions, however, make their own decisions on the grade requirements they have. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with more information as to the relevant exam board and we may be able to give you more information.
Are you getting stressed by the idea of your upcoming exams? One of the best ways to reduce this stress is by doing mock exams and see where you're actually standing. You might realise that you actually already know a lot of the chemistry material. It's also a good way to identify what chemistry topic you should revise a bit more. The best place to find past papers is on the official website of the exam board, which are linked at the top of this article.

To help and support your son with his GCSE work, it is useful to be aware of the examboards and subject specifications. This will help when purchasing revison guides and additional resources and accessing past papers and mark schemes. 2b1af7f3a8
