    Uhh... both? They aren't dissimilar and they both have the same results day, so there isn't much point in making a new thread specifically for IGCSEs. I, like many others, have done a combination of the two.

    They're not really that different. Yes, iGCSEs are often regarded as being more difficult than GCSEs but I seriously do not think that it will matter a huge amount. Universities do take into account your GCSE grades but I really cannot imagine that they would go so far as to differentiate between iGCSEs and GCSEs.

    I'm hoping for 7A*s at least, with the remainder As and the occasional B or two (will probably be in Additional Maths)...:cool:

    I'm taking chemistry, maths, physics and further maths...what exam boards will you be on for chemistry and maths?
