Has anyone gone for this option? What do you make of it?
We do the IGCSE. It's good - a lot better than the atrocious 'new specs'.
There's plenty of time to do things in detail, so make sure you do so. Make sure you cover Section B of the Anthology thoroughly.
Do you have to do 100% examination, or can you do coursework?
Hi - I have started teaching this spec this year because I am in a PRU which makes controlled assessments pretty much impossible. It is a bit of a risk because you are so reliant on the end exam. Overall it is isn't bad - although I find some of the anthology choices a little uninspiring! On the positive side, it does give you more time to actually teach 'English'. The problem I have found is that there are very few resources available to help teach the spec. I suppose I will be able to evaluate it properly when we get the results in August! Good luck.
