請問如現在英國讀y10,老師建議y11考IGSCE英文科,
對日後考英國大學,兩者英文科(IGSCE 和 GCSE) 有何分別?
成績要求有否不同?
謝謝!

GCSE is taken only in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, iGCSE is very similar and is equivalent to GCSE the i stands for international. For others who are not in the Uk they can take the iGCSE, its governed by Cambridge.

咁唔明?點解老師建議佢考IGCSE-ENG?
因為佢現正在英國讀緊Y10,
係唔係成績太差,費事拉低佢學校的合格率?
但對學生本身有無分別?同考大學有無影響?
THANKS!

Actually, more and more independent schools in UK are opting for IGCSE rather than GCSE.  The more common IGCSE in UK now is Edexcel.

On the contrary, they consider GCSE are becoming too easy.

UK minimum requirement for universities is still C in english, math and science the core subjects (min 5 C's and above). But really if you are aiming for the top universities most will want to see really good GCSE/iGCSE grades.

"Why is the English IGCSE as acceptable to universities as an English GCSE?
The English IGCSE is just as acceptable and as highly valued as any English GCSE qualification.  It is recognised by the government, by employers, by sixth-form colleges, by teacher training establishments, indeed everywhere, both in the UK and abroad.
The aims and objectives of GCSE and IGCSE are similar and the marking is equally rigorous. A grade C in IGCSE English has exactly the same value as a grade C in English.
Are there any geographical limitations?
The English IGCSE qualification is an English GCSE that’s examined and examinable anywhere in the world.  “Ordinary” English GCSE, on the other hand, is rarely examined outside the UK. IGCSE English is a truly international qualification, recognised all round the world.
What are the key differences between the course stucture of the English GCSE and IGCSE?
As well as the lack of coursework, you will find that it is not neessary to take a speaking exam (the “oral”) as part of IGCSE English. IGCSE English requires you to  express yourself in writing only, not in speech.
With GCSE English, the coursework element usually focuses on selected literary texts, like Macbeth or Jane Eyre.  This is not required for  IGCSE English, only IGCSE English Literature.
Both GCSE and IGCSE require you to write in a variety of different styles, for different purposes and different media.  Texts for comprehension may be more demanding  in the IGCSE. To gain the top marks in IGCSE English, accurate spelling, grammar and syntax are vital, as well as strong essay-construction skills.  These are also important in the GCSE but fewer marks depend on them."

This is something I found that gives you some idea about the difference.

GCSE has course work where as i GCSE don't, i GCSE has more emphasis on grammar than GCSE. Literature wise GCSE has specific text to choose from most of the time this include Shakespeare like Macbeth etc.

It depends on the situation and how long you've been to the UK, UK students' grammar is not as strong as HK student due to the way they study. UK tends to concentrate on the understanding of the text during literature.
I don't think they offer you the iGCSE because they are worried about pulling the school grade, it might be that you are stronger in iGCSE than GCSE. As GCSE have coursework under supervision, if they can not fully use english without no guidance it may give you a very poor result. IGCSE is just the exam and no coursework.

I took GCSE a long time ago, from what I remember we used to write a lot of essays for coursework, most of it involve you making your own judgement on the piece of writing/poems.

You have to be aware that GCSE is in modules and iGCSE is a one exam at the end of the year.

iGCSE 本来就是给不在英国的人考的. 但是你为什么一定要考GCSE呢.

因為佢現在英國讀緊書(YR7-YR11),照道理全部考GCSE,
而IGCSE只給不在英國讀書的人考,
所以,感覺好似怪怪地,只有英文科考IGCSE,其餘考GCSE,
所以想全部考埋GCSE.
你覺得這情況合理嗎?

其实真的要看学校因为现在有一些学校已经开始只考iGCSE. 我表弟他也是很多科都要考GCSE但是只有中文他们叫他考iGCSE. 其实我觉得那一个都没有关系, 我会给他考他能拿最高分的一个.
