IGCSE courses and examinations
Secondary education is the launch platform for higher and professional studies. IGCSEs are among the most widely accepted qualification across the globe for eligibility for higher, advanced and professional education and degrees.
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is based on the British curriculum (GCSE) but adapted for a more internationally focused student-body. It is mainly exam-based and is assessed through the exam board chosen by the school.
Why is the IGCSE programme good for students?
• The IGCSE is accessible to those of almost all levels of ability. The questions are often differentiated in terms of levels of difficulty to meet the needs of both the most able student as well as those who find academics challenging.
• The wide array of subjects available for IGCSE enables students to work on many different topics to better understand their strengths and interests. This makes choosing the direction of higher studies easier.
• Students find some subjects difficult and frustrating and other easy and enjoyable. The wide range of IGCSE subjects means that it is easier for students to find the subjects they enjoy and are good at.
