    Heyyyyy everyone ^_^

    I'm planning to resit the following subjects in the IGCSE scheme; but I'm wondering if I could have any recommendations on which examination board to choose, as I'm a tad bit unsure which (whether it be Edexcel, OCR etc)

    Chemistry
    Biology
    Physics
    (or combined science)
    Mathematics
    English Language
    English Literature
    Religious Studies
    Business Studies
    Design and Technology

    P.S. With IGCSE's, is it true that it's simply exam-based (2 exams) and doesn't include coursework or ISA's?)

    All comments are welcomed!

    Many thanks!

    For maths and science, I'd go with AQA.

    I'd do edexcel for maths and science igcse. There's no coursework and the boundaries are relatively low

    The exam timetables get released around October so it might be a good idea to choose boards to minimise clashing. Some boards have different assessment structures, some of which might be easier for you depending on whether you're doing it privately(I assume you are). If you want to take exams at a non-standard time(eg. January) then I think CIE is the only option for those subjects.

    Some IGCSEs have coursework and some don't. Some have optional coursework. Check the specifications.

    AQA Science - love it (and no course work)

    Edexcel maths is a bit ishy - Last year's papers were apparently incredibly hard - but it's a good course.
