Practice workbooks and revision
International GCSE family offers world-class qualifications for UK and international students.
Edexcel International GCSEs are studied in over 55 countries worldwide and at over 350 independent schools in the UK. Available in more than 40 subjects, they are equivalent, grade for grade, to UK GCSEs.
The advantage of sitting International GCSEs and International A levels is that most of them are linear, and do not have a coursework component to them. So, a student can be taught or learn the material and give an exam at an examination centre. Please ensure you check the IGCSEs/ I A levels the student wants to sit and check if it requires coursework. Linear Maths and English do not require coursework.
Most Universities accept these qualifications and so do Medical schools but the Medical schools require that the IGCSEs and I A levels are achieved in one sitting and do not accept resits. They have said they do not discriminate between IGCSEs and GCSEs.
It is advisable for those home educated students wanting to pursue a medical career to keep checking with the Medical schools they are interested in attending about their policies as changes can take place from time to time.
