    Not got much to say other than that I did exactly the same thing. What percentage of the total marks is it worth and how have you done one module tests (do you still do those? I know it's changed a bit since I did my GCSEs!)

    Do well on the exam and all will be fine :)

    Oh, and at my 6th form you didn't need science to do psychology, they wanted you to have a good grade in English instead so might be alright anyway, obviously don't know the full ins and out of your situation.

    hmmm, if you was on the same exam board that i was on last year that i did my GCSEs, it counts for about 25% right?
    I wouldnt worry :) If it works for the same as it did for me, (i think this applies if your doing double science) you do three investigations and they only send off the two highest. I actually got moved up to triple and therefore they have to take in account all three of my invesigations....i got 2 A's and a D i think, chemistry was never my strongest :rolleyes:
    Are you doing single, double or triple science? or am i makin no sense what so ever? :P
    Anyway, if your worried about not getting into college, most colleges except you on 5 GCSEs, English and Maths are needed. And if you need to take a year out to re-do your GCSEs it probally the best. I cant begin to tell you how many people that go to my old 6th form, have use their first year of A-levels to come to terms what they want to do, and about 40% of them are going back to do subjects/other qualification that suit them better.
