If you’re wondering which exam board to choose between AQA and Edexcel, the content required for each is very similar – the main differences are in how the exams are written.
The IGCSE Syllabus is different, it has more content and some slightly harder topics than the standard GCSE.
The I in IGCSE stands for International and this qualification is accessible in around 150 countries, whereas the GCSE is only available in the UK and a few other places.
If you’re homeschooling it may be worth going for the IGCSE as it is considered more prestigious by some and it gives you the flexibility to take the qualification from almost anywhere.
I will go through each syllabus in more detail, starting with AQA:
- 1 Number
- 2 Algebra
- 3 Ratio, proportion and rates of change
- 4 Geometry and measures
- 5 Probability
- 6 Statistics
|Topic Area||Foundation Tier (%)||Higher Tier (%)|
|Probability and statistics (combined)||15||15|
