Transition from iGCSE English Language (Core) to iGCSE English Language (Extended) watch

    • Thread Starter

    Dear TSR Readers

    I have always done the core exam, My teacher entered me for the extended tier and core tier for AQA Literature. I was wondering how the extended paper is different to the core paper and how to get the best marks and make a smooth transition. PS I got 34/50 in my last exam (Core). That was just a C. My teacher said I could have possibly higher if my writing was readable. Yes I have had a handwriting problem for years.

    Yours Sincerely


    Wait, are you doing iGCSE English Language AQA? (8705)? Because I'm doing that
Is the Big Bang theory correct?
