The International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an international curriculum developed in 1988, by the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE is a part of the University of Cambridge). It is a flexible programme designed for 14-16 year olds. It aims at “preparing school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for learning.”
Cambridge IGCSE offers students over 70 subjects to choose from. These subjects can be broadly classified into: English Language and Literature, Mathematics, Sciences, Languages, Humanities & Social Sciences and Creative & Professional. Students are required to take at least 5 subjects, but not more than 14. The greater choice in subjects accommodates students’ interests.
Students of the IGCSE are assessed at the end of the course. The assessment can include written, oral, coursework and practical assessments. These options facilitate students, especially those whose first language is not English, to demonstrate their learning. The grades awarded to students range from A* to G, with A* being the highest. The examination sessions take place in June and November.
Cambridge IGCSE is well-regarded by universities and employers. It prepares students for further education options like Cambridge A & AS levels, Cambridge Pre-U, the IB Diploma Programme and other courses.
Considering the differing abilities of students, IGCSE offers a choice in curriculum for few subjects. Students may either choose the ‘Core’ curriculum or the ‘Extended’ curriculum. The Core curriculum consists of a standard syllabus and it covers grades C to G. The Extended curriculum consists of the Core curriculum and the Supplement. It covers grades A* to E. The Extended curriculum is taken up by students who wish to study a subject in depth.
