English Literature IGCSE FAQs

The international GCSE English Literature is of the same level as a GCSE and is examined by Edexcel, one of the UKs most trusted examination boards. A key difference is that IGCSE English Literature does not include classroom controlled assessment or coursework, making it convenient for distance learners.

The English Literature International GCSE qualification is accepted as at least the equivalent of GCSE in UK sixth form colleges, FE colleges, universities and other HE institutions.
