AQA GCSE Geography Home School

My Year 10 daughter is leaving her school and wants to continue with AQA GCSE geography studying independently (with a home tutor as back up). I looked at online courses but they all seem to be for iGCSE which looks very different to her to the AQA syllabus she has studied. Don't really want her to start from scratch, does anyone know if there is a reason not to home study GCSE AQA Geography?

Many thanks in advance

It is probably because of the controlled assessment component www.aqa.org.uk/student-support/private-candidates/subjects-and-qualifications/gcses
It can be very difficult to get them signed off and that is why most HE students do IGCSE.

Hi, my daughter is in exactly the same boat - yr10 GCSE geography student who wants to continue. She could really do with a study buddy even if only online if you're interested? I'm hoping she can continue with the course she was doing at school and will have to have extenuating circumstances for cw not done. I'm trying not to deregister her so that she can still take exams at school and they support us as much as possible. She's not attending due to a lack of support when she was there though.
