International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
About the Cambridge IGCSE
The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the world’s most popular international curriculum for 14 to 16 year olds. Taken in over 100 countries worldwide, this internationally recognised programme is the equivalent of the GCSE in the United Kingdom and the International GCE O Level Examinations.
The Cambridge IGCSE Curriculum
The Cambridge IGCSE aims to cultivate the development of critical skills in students, including creative thinking, enquiry, and problem solving. In doing so, the programme lays the vital groundwork for subsequent lifelong learning. While the Cambridge IGCSE is international in outlook, it also retains local relevance. Students follow a broad and balanced curriculum, comprising the following subjects:
- Social Sciences
- Creative Technical and Vocational
Thanks to the flexible Cambridge IGCSE framework, students have the freedom to select subjects according to their individual interests and capabilities. Systematic, one-to-one curriculum delivery and continuous evaluation ensures that student needs are met through the identification of each learner’s strengths and weakness. This knowledge is used to further support learning and development while preparing learners for a smooth transition to higher education and beyond.
Cambridge IGCSE Outcomes
Recognised by universities and employers all over the world, the Cambridge IGCSE provides a strong foundation for higher level courses, such as the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Cambridge IGCSE students have an exemplary track record in examinations. Progress along the way is facilitated by annual goal setting exercises designed to help students set goals and achieve them.
The objective? To shape students into confident, responsible, reflective, innovative, and engaged individuals while facilitating the path towards further studies and career enhancement.
