why do people do IGCSEWatch
I Know its coz their school offers it to them...but why? wouldnt it be better to do gcses
Dk about others tho
The English iGCSE is certainly easier. When schools realised this they soon switched in the hope of students getting higher grades, and over a third of students in England didn't do a proper GCSE. After a few years the government finally cotttoned on and took iGCSE's out of school league tables.
Btw are you actually a teacher? An Eng lit teacher comes to my mind.
IGCSEs are generally harder for most subjects and are easier to fail in. Think about it, the exams you write at the end of year 11 is everything and most subjects typically don’t have coursework. So if you don’t work or fall ill in the exam month, you’ll fail.
However English is usually easier. I did IGCSE FLE 0500 from CAIE ( formerly CIE ) and it was easier than the GCSE english my friends did. For starters, no literary stuff like quotes and analysis. You get everything you need in the insert. You can type IGCSE FLE in google and click on the first link from Cambridge to learn more.
Honestly , paper 2 question 2 was a pointless mark scoring exercise ( identify and explain for powerful words or phrases and their effects )
