My daughter just did her exams this summer - obviously I don't know what their plans are for the coming years :-) She did IGCSE English Lit and Lang, and two Maths GCSEs, as they did the Linked Pair scheme that is being piloted.

Hth :-)

I meant IGCSE English Language and IGCSE English Literature, two separate exams. Sorry if I was misleading!

I'm sure they did CIE. Language was 50% coursework -short story, film review, response to a newspaper article, 50% exam. Plus they did the optional speaking and listening bit.

For Literature there are different combinations, and you can choose coursework, but they did the route where it's all exam. 75% on their set texts, 25% on an unseen piece.
