IGCSE difficulty level
IGCSE Spanish exam from Cambridge is more challenging than the Edexcel version because of the listening and the reading part of the exam. Whereas the Cambridge listening part of the Cambridge version is longer than its counterpart, the expected answers at the Edexcel Spanish exam are shorter due to shorter interviews. The same conditions apply to the reading section, where the texts of the Cambridge board contain more complex vocabulary and harder grammar structures.
The Edexcel IGCSE Spanish exam groups the writing and the reading sections in one paper, making it an easier exam for students. Also, the reading part of the Edexcel IGCSE Spanish exam gives more importance to many multiple choice questions, so the chances for students to score higher increase significantly. While the Cambridge IGCSE Spanish has a role play together with a short speech and a general conversation with the examiner, the Edexcel version does not include the role played in its exam.
