    Yeah it is.
    It really makes me irritated that there are so many people who think medicine is the only way for smart people to be rich :facepalm:

    It is annoying indeed, especially when you are good at maths/sciences people would just ask 'why not go for medicine'

    What do you mean by sciences?

    And nope, you gotta beg. Why should a King give His rep freely out to peasants? :crown:

    By sciences I mean physics/chemistry/biology.

    LoL never give people colourful names unless you ACTUALLY know them. It may be you who turn out to be the 'peasant', dear.

    I should prefer to be a bystander witnessing your majesty begging for more reps (or mutual repping?:congrats: ) anyway. May God bless you so you can get the rep from C0balt soon:ahee:

    Rather than the rep, I think you need your brain back. I told yeh, I was too tipsy, I ain't no king.

    Anyway I don't expect any rep from any metals or seasons, just fellow peasants. :bban:

    please don't let a douche from Sri Lanka turn this productive thread upside down.
    winterwind could you share with everyone your opinions on
    1) difficulty level of CIE?
    2) why you chose CIE?
    3) would you recommend others to sit for CIE papers?

    LoL in this case 'no' means 'any'. Double negatives were used in colloquial English (such as using 'ain't') to express an emphasised negative. The mathematical logic that double negatives makes a positive is true for standard English speakers but not for colloquial English.

    Sure, my pleasure:flower2:

    1) The two CIE IGCSE maths papers I did were definitely harder than Edexcel's. Also the grade boundaries are higher. For Edexcel IGCSE you normally need no more than 85% for an A* but for CIE you need around 90% or higher

    2) I only did maths with CIE because my teacher thought Edexcel wasn't challenging enough... I did enjoy solving more demanding problems, but it would be much easier to get an A* with Edexcel so I'm feeling a bit...weird.

    3) If you don't enjoy coursework and are an international student it may be a good idea to go for CIE. Also if you want more challenging stuff. (It may not be the case with humanities though.)

    I think your teacher was on about Maths A. Edexcel also have Maths B which are of CIE standards. Also if you really wanted to be challenged you could also take the further maths IGCSE from Edexcel. It even has A2 stuff :yy:

    Bingo - I self taught Edexcel IGCSE Further Pure Maths. It was a last-minute decision so I had to rush for my exams, not really the most ideal exams I would like...There are some C3&4 stuff involved, mainly differentiation/integration and vectors.
