IGCSE English - Second Language: What is the difference between syllabus 0510 and 0511?

IGCSE English as a Second Language 0510 (oral endorsement):

The oral component for Cambridge IGCSE English Second Language 0510 is a 'non-counting endorsement' - in other words it is certificated separately from the main grade awarded for the written papers, on a scale of 1-5 (as opposed to the standard IGCSE grade scale of A*-U). Performance in this component does not affect the syllabus grade for the written papers. The oral component is a compulsory component of the IGCSE English Second Language syllabus which is recognised by many UK and international universities. For full details of how the 0510 oral test (component 5) should be conducted please refer to the current syllabus.

IGCSE English as a Second Language 0511 (count-in oral):

The oral component of 0511/05 contributes 15% to the final syllabus grade. It is reported on a standard IGCSE grade scale of A* to G. The other components are weighted as follows: Reading/Writing 70%, Listening 15%. 0511 is the Ofqual accredited version of the syllabus.
