These are both widely recognised and accepted by colleges and universities throughout the world.
IGCSEs were first introduced in 1988 and are seen as being the same standard as GCSEs but never include any coursework and are more accessible to people internationally.
Edexcel are an awarding body that offer world-class academic qualification including GCSEs and A Levels.
All of their qualifications are to the highest possible standards and seen as an international standard in knowledge of a subject.
Electric current will only flow if there are charges which can move freely. Metals contain many free electrons which are negatively charged and flow through out the metal. The resistance in a wire occurs because the electrons have to get past the fixed positively charged ions.
So if we change the thickness or length of a wire, we change the number of ions affecting the flow of electrons and so change the resistance.It is comparable to the UK reformed GCSEs in terms of the level of demand and assessment standards.The Physics GCSE that we offer is the international version, also known as the IGCSE, as this course is more suited to distance learning and can be taken by people in any country.Your assignments are marked by your personal tutor and detailed feedback is given.As well as this your tutor will provide you with pointers and advice on where you can improve- this helps you to get the most from your courses and constantly improve your skills.Exam fees can vary between centres but are much cheaper when organised early so we advise to book your exams long before the actual examination date.This qualification is designed to meet the Edexcel GCSE specification.Throughout this GCSE Physics course students will learn about an array of physics concepts and how these apply to real world situations.Not only does this course give a deep understanding of principles, it also focuses on experimentation and explains practical experiments that can be undertaken by learners.First teaching: September 2017 First external assessment: 2019 Our Pearson Edexcel International GCSE (9-1) Physics specification and support materials have been developed with the help of teachers, higher education representatives and subject expert groups.The qualification supports progression to further study, with up-to-date content reflecting the latest thinking in the subject.
