    Having to provide IT support for Controlled Assessment

    The prob is this, as we see it. Quite a few candidates have exam concessions which entitle them to a word processor at least; so they just have to be provided (Disability Discrim legislation). If we then prevent others from using w/p and other tools, we are disadvantaging them - and there's no doubt in my mind that producing Geog c/w is far, far better electronically. So we've just got to make it available to all, if they are to perform at their best. (If you can persuade your school to opt for IGCSE you may well be lucky enough to find there's no c/w at all - problem solved at a stroke!)

    but alot of schools will be reluctant to do the IGCSE route as quite a few colleges/uni don't accept them
