    My school does iGCSE in some courses too sometimes. Some people in my year often joke about this type of Qualification. Apparently, an A* in iGCSE is equivalent to a D, I'm not inclined to believe that. An A is an A, and so are all the other grades.

    omg u nearly got me there lmaoooo. so is an igcse easier ???
    I did IGCSE for English Language and I got a B only a few marks off an A. I was allowed to re-set again in the summer as my school does it in November and in May so I wouldn't say its hard but it is challenging. It is more about learning the skills required for the exam and the different questions as well as having a good vocab. Hope this helps!
