IGCSE's are way higher statistically speaking. This is because you are competing against international students (Chinese, Indian etc) AND against Britians top &quot;private school children&quot; who neccessarily don't want to do bad since they are paying so much money.
As a result, content has to be suited for foreign students as well who may in all respects &quot;require more challenging&quot; material.
Having done both IGCSE's and GCSE's I can safely say IGCSE content goes into further depth in contrast to the new GCSE's and was "easier" to get higher grades.

The general consensus is that they are around a similar level of difficulty (some will say IGCSEs and harder and vice versa). I do believe that they are both recognised in a similar vein, and neither of them provides an advantage when applying to a university or sixth form.
