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.
