International General Certificate of Secondary Education

The IGCSE is a two-year programme of study which students follow between the ages of 14 and 16 in Grades 9-10.

Designed and administered by the University of Cambridge International Examinations Board (CIE), IGCSE has been specifically created for international students, although it is also taught at international schools in the UK. It is accepted as a preliminary requirement for entry into all UK universities, and is recognised by universities and colleges around the world.

Students who wish to go on to take the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) in Grades 11 and 12 are required to achieve six IGCSEs at Grade C or above, including English and Maths. The IB Diploma is offered in English only.
