Is the issue of American/Australian versus British English spelling a problem in Cambridge IGCSE First Language English?

Examiners are used to receiving answers in both British English and American/Australian English. What is important is that candidates aim at consistency. In extended writing, for example, candidates should not be using different spellings for the same word (e.g. using ‘flavor’ and ‘flavour’ in the same piece).
