    Hello. I am wondering if I should go for GCE O level or IGCSE. Which would be a better option? Most of the syllabus is identical. Do universities in US (Harvard, Princeton, Yale,MIT,Cornell etc) and UK(Oxbridge) have any preference or inclination to one?
    What is the difference and which one should I choose. I value academic rigor and want to get a few WHs.

    My subjects- 1. Additional maths, 2. maths, 3. Physics, 4. Chemistry, 5. Biology, 6. Computer Sciemce. 7. English language. 8. Economics. 9. Englosh literature 10. Sociology/literature.

    I am from Bangladesh btw.

    I would imagine US Universities might prefer IGCSE as they are International GCSEs but really they're all pretty much equal.
Which Fantasy Franchise is the best?
