What is Cambridge IGCSE?

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an English language curriculum offered to students to prepare them for International Baccalaureate, A Level and BTEC Level 3 (which is recommended for higher-tier students).


The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum offers a variety of routes for learners with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English.
Nearly a million students in 10,000 schools in over 160 countries prepare for the future with IGCSE qualifications. The curriculum sets a global standard for education, with programs that stretch, challenge and inspire students. Cambridge students can be confident that their qualifications will be valued by universities and employers across the world.
