Cambridge IGCSE has existed for more than 30 years. Today, it’s the world’s most popular international qualification for 14- to 16-year-olds. Not only is it truly international – but it also gives students more options than any other international qualification. That means more subjects to choose from, more ways to learn and more ways to succeed. The standards of Cambridge IGCSE are aligned with the GCSE qualification taken in England.
Cambridge IGCSE assessment takes place at the end of the course and can include written, oral, coursework and practical assessment. This broadens opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning, particularly when their first language is not English. In many subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making Cambridge IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities.
