International GCSE (Gr 10-11)

international GCSE

The international GCSE builds a great foundation for further study. Pupils will be fully prepared to progress to pre-university study, including Cambridge International AS and A Level, Cambridge Pre-U, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and other post-16 routes.

World-class assessments are designed to give you a variety of ways to show your knowledge and skills, and various options are available to suit learners of different abilities.

The international GCSE is accessible for a learner whose first language is not English, and all subjects develop skills in working and communicating in English.

An exit certificate on this level is attainable through Cambridge International Examinations called Cambridge ICE. This award is recognised in the US and South America, and acknowledges the achievements of students who pass Cambridge IGCSE examinations in at least seven subjects chosen from five subject areas.

Opening up opportunities worldwide

An international GCSE qualification is recognised by leading universities around the world and employers view it as a valuable certificate of achievement, bearing the Cambridge name. It opens up global opportunities for the student.

In the UK, Cambridge IGCSE is accepted as equivalent to the GCSE. A good grade (grade C or above) in international GCSE English as a Second Language is accepted for entry by a number of universities in the UK as evidence of competence in the English language.

Many universities worldwide require a combination of international GCSEs and International A Levels to meet their entry requirements. Leading US and Canadian universities require International AS and A Levels, but some US and Canadian colleges and universities will accept students with five international GCSEs at grade C or above. 

Exciting new developments on our international GCSE courses include webinar access and recorded lessons.
