I have lived abroad for too long to fully understand how GCSEs work and would be grateful if those of you who have children going through the system and/or teach it could answer a few questions.
For various reasons I would like my daughter to take an iGCSE in English and to obtain a grade C.
Looking at the website it says that Foundation level can give grades C to G and Higher level grades A to C and what I wanted to know is how easy is it to get a grade C if you do the Foundation level. My daughter has never had any formal schooling in English and, looking at the papers, the Foundation level is much more straightforward than the higher level but on the other hand, if the answers need to be perfect to get a C, maybe she would be better off doing the higher level where she could presumably lose a lot more marks and still get a C.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
