Hi.

About the study resources, I would suggest that you take a look online at Amazon or any bookshops i.e. WHSmiths which sell study guides and find either the Letts Revise IGCSE Mathematics Study Guide or the Edexcel Certificate/ IGCSE Maths Revision Guide. I had the ICT/English equivalents and found them both really helpful and easy to understand.
They also do study guides for the iGCSE English as well.

As for the difference between the two, are you asking about the difference between iGCSEs and GCSES?

I've found this, which explains it if you are:
The IGCSE allows teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant in different regions. It is suitable for students whose first language may not be English and this is acknowledged throughout the examination progress.

GCSEs are what most students in the UK take as they are the most widely available qualification.

Well... I disagree ^

IGCSE - Traditional O-Level system for an example the sciences are a lot harder and closer to A-Level than GCSE is. However... English Language ofcourse is going to be easier, but literature isn't.

GCSE - They combined CSE and O-Level into this " GCSE " and is going though give changes as they want GCSE upto first-class standard comparing to the top education systems such as South Korea. IGCSE CIE always makes sure its tougher than GCSE's don't know why.

He is at school, he will be provided with teaching, text books and resources to enable him to learn the content and prepare for the exams. If you look on the edexcel web site you will see a wealth of past papers to use for revision.
