International GCSE (IGCSE)
Grades 9 and 10 (ages 14 to 16)
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) has been designed for 14 to 16 year olds. Students who obtain an IGCSE qualification from Cambridge are prepared for further academic success, including progression to International Baccalaureate and equip students will the skills needed for immediate employment. IGCSE is recognised as evidence of ability by academic institutions and employers around the world.
IGCSE provides a broad study programme by drawing subjects from five areas: Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Creative, Technical and Vocational. Within the curriculum there is a balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge. With a choice of Core and Extended papers in most subjects, the IGCSE is suitable for students with different levels of ability.
The IGCSE is an internally based curriculum allowing teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant in different regions. It is also suitable for students whose first language may not be English and this is acknowledged throughout the examination progress.
The IGCSE Coordinator is Ms Elaine Busuttil Gili. firstname.lastname@example.org Please contact her with any questions about the IGCSE programme.
