help for private gcseWatch
I want just to know some informations about doing one gcse privately , so I'm from France and as I want to continue my study in london ,I started Gcse (in one years) which is obligatory for go to A level but when I asked to my college if I can do french gcse this year (with my other 5 gcse's) they said that they don't teach french and advised me to do french Gcse as a private candidate, so I went to a exam center and they asked me a CODE
so with the help of my previous discussion in this website I found the code (gcse and Igcse) but the main problem is:
How do you know if these GCSEs (or igcse) are still current ?
Which gcse or igcse should I take ?
(I mean wich will be better and why don't really understand the difference beetwen Igcse and gcse)
P.S:I've found my exam center (cherry hill tuiton) and I can write and speak french fluently,I need JUST to do the exam (without coursework) just for add my french gcse at the end with my other 5 GCSE's .
I would like to express my gratitude for all your help in this matter
Thank you very much in advance !
GCSE French is usually 60% coursework and 40% examination. Whereas, an IGCSE in French would be entirely assessed by examination. The coursework can be quite tedious. Therefore, if u are fluent in French it may be a better option to sit the IGCSE exams.
The most recent IGCSE series is the 2011 one.
My sister is doing GCSE French and currently GCSE French is 60% coursework and 40% exam for the 4 main exam boards in the UK which are AQA, OCR, Edexcel and WJEC. However, from this September the current GCSE course will be phased out and replaced with the reformed GCSE which will be assessed 100% by examination.
On Page 4-5, it says the exams needed for the qualification: Listening, Reading and Writing are assessed by an examination, while Speaking is asessed by a school and marked by the exam board. There's no Coursework in the new specification.
IGCSE can be different though.
As now gcse is 100% by examination (and not 60 % and 40 %) both GCSE and igcse are 100 % so do you trust that It will be better for me to do Igcse just because it's more hard ? I mean why I gcse is more harder than gcse (which is normally equivalent each other)
so will it be possible to do gcse exam next year 2017 !
If it says: First Assessment: 2018, then it means that specification isn't released yet and you have to use the older one.
So I think I will give the IGCSE 4FR0 to my tuiton
merci beaucoup à tout le monde !
