IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) is the international version of the English GCSE. IGCSE is the world’s most commonly taken international examination.
All of our IGCSE courses follow the Cambridge International Examination (CIE) syllabi.
Our students usually take 8 subjects for IGCSE and have some choice over which subjects they study. We invite Year 9 parents and students to an information meeting in late January or early February at which we explain IGCSE and our options system.
IGCSE is a two year course taken during Key Stage 4 (Years 10 and 11), usually with the examination in June at the end of Year 11. Examination results are announced by CIE in mid August before the start of the next academic year. Examinations are graded A* to G. Students need to achieve at least 5 grades A* to C for entry to A Level courses. We usually expect students to achieve at least a grade B in those subjects they are hoping to study at A Level.
