Hi Cathy We started the IGCSE ICT starting in 2009. It does allow you to teach more as you are not overrun with coursework marking. Obviously will know more when the students take the exam in June this year. Edexcel could have been more helpful. Nothing knew on their IGCSE ICT website for the past 18 months. I thought they would offer more materials to help the students prepare for the exams. At least there is a book out now published by Pearsons. We ran the first year of the course without it as it has only recently been released. If you need any advice by all means ask.
