From what I've heard about it I'd say IGCSE is harder

IGCSEs both because the syllabus is harder and also you are against tougher competition. Did like 6 IGCSEs 4 GCSEs and noticed the difference.

I did IGCSE Chemistry and the content from that alone covered about 65% of the AS Chemistry course I sat. All the new students who came for 6th Form did GCSE Chemistry and REALLY struggled with AS Chemistry. IGCSEs are worth it. Trust.

Have you seen igcse English ??? This was proper easy! The examiners are strict on how to get marks but the coursework has a higher amount overall!

IGCSE

But when it comes to English then it's definitely GCSE.

IGCSE one of my friends did it and breezed through AS
Others with A*s in GCSE chemistry struggled a lot.
IGCSE prepares you more for a level

I believe that in general IGCSE's overall are harder. However I did IGCSE English Language which is by far easier than GCSE English Language. I think that Enlgish Language (IGCSE) is the exception.

As an examiner, I would prefer my students sit for IGCSE. Its worth it because it sets a foundation for A levels.
