IGCSE and no the "I" is meant to be there
« on: January 11, 2009, 10:37:54 pm »
I moved to Mallorca  a year back and have recently moved back. Whilst I was there I attended and International School English, Curriculum based. The exam board was cie, Cambridge Board of International examinations or something like that.
When I returned to England and resumed the GCSE's I found that I had to do all this coursework which hadn't done before.

I would advice if in RL you intend to move the country bear in mind your education, or if your really old and you have children of your own (maybe not that old lol) their education. GCSE's are fairly important and I would advice people consider moving abroad to consider education before they do I moved in year 9 and left at the end of year 10 so I had a whol eyear of doing an entire different course to what Im doing now.
All I can say is its bloody difficult!

International GCSEs don't tend to do coursework, as people from all over the world take them and they may not have the time for coursework, where as compulsory schooling in the UK gives you the time to do coursework. There is also the fact that your present school may not use the same exam board, if it's even available.

I particularly feel sorry for a New Zealander friend who went back to NZ just a few days ago, midway through her GCSEs. Her mother wouldn't stay here for another few months despite her stepfather's best efforts (They moved to the UK in 2005 after her NZ mother married a British stepfather) and now she'll have to start the New Zealand equivalent again and start the year again, even though over half the course is already done.

How are you doing with your course anyway?

Its not that the work is difficult in fact it is easier but its the work load that I have to do that is the fustrating part. I have tonnes of coursework to catch up on. I also only did Chemistry in Spain. When I came back they wanted me to do all 3! Since then I have dropped Biology even though my predicted was a B which was pretty damn good! I have continued both Chemistry and Physics and even though I missed an entire years worth of work for physics I am predicted an A* wooooo yeah lol.
