IGCSE and GCSE are equivalent qualifications as far UK universities and employers are concerned. Many independent and some state schools in the UK use IGCSE instead of GCSE. They are a good alternative to GCSE in many subjects becuase they don't require coursework or controlled assessments and can be tested by examination only.
