Schools may register students for exams early, most often in the summer of year 10.So, yes, your child can have a GCSE sooner. Our IGCSE course will give your child an additional GCSE that is not available in many schools. Studying for the computer science iGCSE with us will ensure that your child knows exactly what is required of them at the GCSE level.

Able students can take one or two exams right from the start, allowing them to focus on a wider range of GCSE subjects in general. Thousands of people don't get top marks on their English and Math GCSEs because they're taking them a year earlier. As a result, they are likely to miss the opportunity to study subjects for Level A or at university. Here, there are 252 14-year-olds in Year 9, traditionally the year before GCSE courses begin, who already have at least one GCSE.

More information on early entry can be found in the department's report on GCSE early entry and the Ofsted report on GCSE early entry.

Future teacher-I hope! I am currently at university in England. I got into blogging during lockdown, which is when I became an online tutee too! I love blogging and love tutoring. I'm also a total maths geek. I've been tutoring GCSE students for a while, and this is a blog about GCSE tutoring.
