Execution problem in running multiple scripts

hi all,
I have 3 individual scripts to perform the task . 2nd script should run only after the 1st script and 3rd script must run only after first 2 scripts are executed successfully.

i want to have a single script that calls all this 3 scripts .this single script should execute the 2nd script only after the 1st script is successful .
can anyone tell me how can we do this ??
thanks in advance !!

p.s : am not allowed to put the functionality of 3 scripts as a single script
