In our experience NO they are not harder in fact more straightforward and with PROPER fieldwork if you go for CIE but isnt this summer the last that are allowed in state schools?

Hi
We do AQA Level 1/2 certificate (the equivalent of an IGCSE). It is almost the same content as AQA A but with a third paper on skills and decision making. It is no easier/harder than a GCSE, just different I feel. I have done Edexcel IGCSE in the past with an international group of students and that was tough, there is only 1 enormous 3+ hour exam at the end (if I remember correctly).
Hope that helps!

General Discussion / Are iGCSEs harder than GCSEs?
« Last post by paulsturtivant on February 22, 2017, 08:01:40 AM »
Morning,

I've got 6 students who haven't done CA and so I'm entering them for iGCSEs

My Head is asking whether this might be better for some of our challenging students who do not attend and disrupt lessons (and so have been removed from lessons)

So, from your experience, are iGCSEs more difficult than regular GCSEs?

Thank you for your help!!

Does anyone find that these topics end up getting covered by Science in their school?  I've had it happen a  couple of times which is really frustrating.
