    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)

    (or combined science)
    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!

    Omg, that's so unfair we never got to choose the exam boards.

    I guess to help you choose you could look at some past papers and decide which questions you like more.
    You don't have to answer them of course, its just so you have an idea of what the exam boards are testing you on.
    You might also want to look at mark schemes as some exam boards have extra marks for SPAG (spelling punctuation and grammer) and that might or might not be in your favour.
    I'm sorry I can't be more specific but I hope this helps.

    Good luck in choosing.
