    I have just entered a student for IGCSE and now other English teachers are telling me it is very difficult compared to other exam boards. What do people think?
  2. Which board? I am thinking of switching to the Edexcel one from September. It has just been accredited.

    I have also looked at Edexcel but then are waiting to see what we will do with current Y9 first, then make a decision
    Can current Y11, who are sitting any of the other boards and are cashing in their controlled assessments this time, also sit an IGCSE this May as well? Just thinking of trying this with some of very able students who have got A on all controlled assessments and also got A in their unit 1 and unit 2 exams. Not sure if they can take two exam boards at the same time though, anybody know?

    We're doing AQA and so far, so good. The research aspect of the Language coursework is certainly a new challenge but a worthwhile one considering their academic futures.
