    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

    Is it true with IGCSE's that there are no controlled assessments or coursework?
    Also is there a particular exam for each of the sciences that'll give me 3 IGCSE grades instead of 1 or 2?

    All comments are welcomed!

    Many thanks!

    IGCSEs (CIE) may be harder than the GCSEs but they prep you better for your IB/A levels. Granted, you may not be thinking about the next step in education at this point, but trust me, IGCSE sciences will help build up a stronger foundation for your sciences, should you choose to pursue them at IB/A levels

    AQA is the easiest out of all of them. CIE papers are sent from hell. (Personal experience)
