I was discussing IGCSEs over on another forum and also asked about the importance of an English GCSE when it comes to accessing employment and higher education. My son has had a look at the English IGCSE exam papers but thinks they're too difficult for him at the moment. He studies English every now and then but it isn't one of his priority subjects at the moment. His plan is to take English exams when he is ready and only if he needs to.

I feel that I'm doing the right thing by letting my son focus on the subjects he enjoys and is good at for the time being. My experience is that parents of children with AS overwhelmingly get worried about the subjects their children are bad at or can't do rather than those that they are good at and can do well. This doesn't do any justice to the children because they end up sacrificing their strengths and talents for something they may never be good at, and they get bitter and frustrated in the process.

I am interested to find out more re IGCE - my son is particularly interested in History and Science, I would prefer him to focus on what he is most passionate about. That said I am keen for him to consolidate maths and english because without them he will not succeed - have had long battle about subjects such as french which he struggles with - as well as being a child with aspergers he is also has dyspraxi, dyslexia and CFS - It is such a struggle for him as he is bright and sharp with his thinking but has real barriers in trying to display his knowledge.

IGCSEs are offered in a diverse range of subjects by two exam boards. The first is and the second is which was formerly the London examination board.

The Cambridge IGCSE has recently been approved by Ofqual for use in although only a tiny handful of schools which rank highly on the league tables offer it as an alternative to GCSEs. Only a handful of Edexcel IGCSEs have been approved for use in state schools under the guise of the and they are currently all foreign languages although approval of other subjects is pending - including history, double science, and separate physics, chemistry, and biology.

I have been trying to find exam centres that accept external candidates such as HE kids but it has been a struggle. Many centres are independent schools that only admit candidates as a personal favour whilst other centres will not accept candidates below 16 (or in some cases 18) years old.

If you would like more information about IGCSEs I will endeavour to find out as my proposal is to have a page on this website dedicated to exams and qualifications including a list of exam centres.
