What is the difference between the GCSE and the IGCSE?

The GCSE and the IGCSE are generally viewed as equivalent qualifications at the same level. The GCSE is taken mostly by students studying in the U.K. (generally - not including Scotland) whereas the IGCSE is mainly taken by international students across the globe (there are some British schools shifting from the GCSE to the IGCSE). Although there are always people who argue that one is harder than the other, the two qualifications are largely considered to on par with each other.

What is the difference between different exam boards for the IGCSE?

Offered by different exam boards, such as Pearson Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE - formerly known as the CIE) only differ in terms of the exam format and question style while there are no considerable differences in terms of the difficulty of exam materials.

Should I take the SAT or the ACT?​

The SAT and ACT are quite similar in terms of the level of difficulty and the areas of knowledge covered. Having said that, there are still some differences. For example, the ACT has a science section while the SAT doesn’t. Also, they adopt different calculator policies for the maths section. There is an increasing trend for students to prepare for both of the exams concurrently to gain maximum advantages for college admissions.

What are the benefits of taking AP?​

There are many benefits you can get from taking AP. An important one is that if you receive a score of 3 or higher in an AP test, some American colleges will offer you course credit for that test, which means you can take fewer courses at college and graduate sooner.
