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!

If you want all 3 sit triple award for 3 grades, for 2 sit double award( half as many papers). No coursework in the majority.

You can take each Edexcel IGCSEs sciences separately and get 3 grades.

There is no coursework just 2 written papers

Many thanks! So for each IGCSE board there's no coursework? It goes for all other subjects as well? English, Mathematics etc?
But I'm still wondering which board to choose for Biology, Chemistry & Physics; whether it be aqa, OCR, Edexcel etc

For maths and English there is no coursework if you do Edexcel igcses. For English it is best to do Igcse english language b.
I think it's best to do igcse science with Edexcel as there is no coursework.

OCR and AQA don't offer IGCSEs. The choice is CIE or Edexcel and I'd go with Edexcel as more centres offer them.
