    It depends on which board you've done for GCSE. Personally, I found the leap a lot bigger than I was expecting. But once you get used to it, it's fine. In general languages are a lot of work but they're worth it... in the end. 😋

    If you did iGCSE that means you did orals without preparation right? In which case you should find the transition easier. There's a lot more homework for languages, but it's easier to revise for exams.

    If you work properly from the start (unlike me) it's hardly a step up. You just learn more.

    For past oral questions, check on the exam board websites. The oral is noticably more difficult, but obviously managable.
