The international GCSE Spanish 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 Spanish does not include controlled assessment or coursework, making it convenient for distance learners.
The Spanish International GCSE qualification is accepted as at least the equivalent of GCSE in UK sixth form colleges, FE colleges, universities and other HE institutions.
The course costs £425. Click for full details of The Oxford Open Learning Trusts GCSE and international GCSE prices
Studying in my own time was perfect. To receive all the materials in advance meant I could work at my own pace and plan when I could study alongside working in a full time job. Having a tutor at the end of the phone really helps if you find something you are unsure of. The course materials also provided me with links, support information and book recommendations which I found very helpful. I would definitely recommend this style of education and was thrilled with my grade A.
