    Bored, In ICT, so I decided to make a TSR account. Was stuck on what to name myself so I looked out the window and named myself according to the first thing I saw.

    1) My final exam piece (Coursework = 64/80, B... Predicted a B overall)

    2) Candidate B (Coursework = 37/80, D... Predicted a C overall)

    3) Candidate C (Coursework = 76/80, A... Predicted an A/A* overall)



    Most surprising is the D grade coursework, I mean that painting is so good, shame he didn't do that standard in coursework...
    Oh myy... I think the D grade one is better than the A grade. :'( That's so sad for the person! :/

    And omg Fish! The irony! We were told to be outside at 1 for our class pictures. -_- We didn't even get any notice and i looked so pooey.

    Well I would say GCSEs are worse then compared to IGCSE - if I did a test on everything rather than loads of coursework i would have preferred it - some of the coursework is just unreal in terms of how much there is to do. Exams, meh - not usually that bad
    Yeah, the only thing is the content really. I know that maths IGCSE is more difficult than GCSE, because there's more content and way higher grade boundaries - the raw marks required for an A* for the exam I did, for instance, was 188/200. This probably due to the fact that it's mostly asians doing the paper, which I know is a stereotype, but it is one that generally holds for (I)GCSE and A-level maths where hard work alone can get you very far regardless of aptitude.

    However, I'm not too sure if we covered more content for other subjects compared to GCSE.

    I thought IGCSE grade boundaries were low - 45%ish is a B 65%ish is an B

    That's low, no? In the jan paper if you got 5% you got an E

    (Higher Tier)

    Well that's fair enough. If you do iGCSE history vs GCSE history what's the difference? apart from no controlled assessments?
