Cambridge IGCSE

Today, Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-olds. Not only is it truly international – it gives students more options than any other international qualification. That means more subjects to choose from, more ways to learn, and more ways to succeed.

Cambridge IGCSE curriculum

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.

We help families and individuals build a program around their specific needs. Starting from a foundation of core subjects, it is easy to add breadth and cross-curricular perspectives. Encouraging learners to engage with a variety of subjects, and make connections between them, is fundamental to our approach.

Cambridge IGCSE offers a flexible and stimulating curriculum, supported by excellent resources and training.

For learners, Cambridge IGCSE helps improve performance by developing skills in creative thinking, inquiry, and problem-solving. It is the perfect springboard for advanced study.

There are over 70 subjects available at Cambridge IGCSE, including 30 languages, and learners can select them in any combination. Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding, and skills in:

  • Subject content
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as familiar situations
  • Intellectual inquiry
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  • Working and communicating in English
  • Influencing outcomes
  • Cultural awareness.

Schools worldwide have been involved in the development of Cambridge IGCSE. The syllabuses are international in outlook but retain a local relevance. They have been created specifically for an international student body and to avoid cultural bias.

What is the difference between IGCSE Core and IGCSE Extended?

To take into account differing abilities, there is a choice between Core and Extended curriculum papers in some subjects.

The Core curriculum is within the ability range of a large majority of students. It provides a full overview of the subject and is targeted at students expected to achieve grades C to G.

The Extended curriculum has been designed for the more academically able. It is targeted at those expected to achieve grades A to E.

Cambridge O level

Cambridge O Level is an internationally recognized qualification equivalent to Cambridge IGCSE and the UK GCSE. It provides learners with excellent preparation for Cambridge Advanced as well as other progression routes.

Cambridge O Level curriculum

Cambridge O Level is an internationally recognized qualification equivalent to Cambridge IGCSE and UK GCSE. Cambridge O Level provides learners with excellent preparation for academic progression to Cambridge Advanced as well as other progression routes.

We designed Cambridge O Level for an international audience. It is sensitive to the needs of different countries and for learners whose first language may not be English. This is acknowledged during the assessment process.

In some countries, schools use Cambridge O Level as an international alternative or addition to the local government’s examination.

A broad curriculum

The Cambridge O-Level curriculum enables teaching to be placed in a localized context, making it relevant wherever you teach it. You can choose from more than 40 subjects in any combination.

The Cambridge O-Level curriculum emphasizes broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects. It develops learners’ skills in creative thinking, inquiry, and problem solving and is structured so they build practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

  • subject content

  • intellectual inquiry
  • flexibility and responsiveness to change

Cambridge Advanced

Cambridge Advanced is typically for learners aged 16 to 19 years who need advanced study to prepare for university and higher education. It offers learners Cambridge International AS & A Level. Cambridge Advanced builds on the foundations of Cambridge Upper Secondary, although learners do not need to complete that stage before this one.

Cambridge International AS & A Levels

Thousands of learners worldwide gain places at leading universities every year with Cambridge International AS & A Levels. The syllabuses develop a deep understanding of subjects and independent thinking skills.

Curriculum

We help homeschooling families and individuals to build a Cambridge Advanced curriculum that brings success for learners. The syllabuses prepare learners for university study, which is why universities worldwide value and recognize Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.

Some subjects can be started as a Cambridge International AS Level and extended to a Cambridge International A Level.
