"My daughter got an A* thanks to the blissfully wonderful Alexa. She is the most brilliant teacher – she enjoyed every minute of working with her. Alexa gave her confidence and inspired her and increased her love of the subject. I only hope she stays tutoring long enough to help our youngest when the time comes."Mother of A Level student
"I am glad it is now over, but I think a little piece of me will be sad not to have a daily dose of mental stimulation every morning, or having my spirits perked up by such a great teacher. As I've told you before, I most certainly want to go into teaching later in life, and you should know that you have played a big part in making that wish stronger! If I can have the same effect on a student as you have with me, then I will count myself a lucky man!"A Level Latin student
What is the difference between IGCSE and GCSE?
GCSE and IGCSE are certainly very similar. Both qualifications are at the same level: they are designed to test the completion of the UK National Curriculum's "Key Stage 4". They are usually sat at the end of UK Year 11, in the year a student becomes 16. They have no age restriction, though - and have been sat by many students younger and older. By most higher education institutions and employers, they are seen as equivalent qualifications.
Top Tips for GCSE (and iGCSE) Exam Technique
Some of the most common mistakes that Keystone’s tutors see relate to exam technique. So many marks are lost by students who have not read the question properly and answer the question they thought they read, or wanted to read.
