I know it's easier for English as students only have to answer 3 questions whereas normal English language gcse (Aqa) students have to answer 6. The grade boundaries for history are also really low in comparison to Aqa history GCSEs.

From what I've heard, IGCSEs are way harder than GCSEs. Especially Cambridge.

(btw. I do Cambridge IGCSEs for all my subjects except foreign languages where I do AQA)

I do GCSEs for English- I have 3 questions on one literature paper, 4 on the other, 2 on the writing language paper and 4 on the reading paper.

I do iGCSEs for other subjects for example foreign languages and I think they are harder than GCSEs as there are no controlled assessments or coursework and everything is exam based. For all of the iGCSE subjects I do it is entirely exam based.
