Information about Cambridge International Examinations and IGCSEs
Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 5 to 19 year olds. Part of the University of Cambridge, these qualifications are recognised by the world’s leading universities and employers.
The IGCSE programme is the world’s most popular international qualification for students in the 14 - 16 age group. It is widely recognised as evidence of academic ability and gives flexibility to their learning and choice of subjects. Whilst we are not in a position to offer the same breadth, there are some 70 subjects that are currently available to students worldwide.
IGCSE courses are currently taught in over 140 countries, in almost 3,700 schools worldwide, including 1,300 in the UK. Increasingly, large schools in the UK are looking to the IGCSE rather than its non-international counterpart, due to its additional rigour and breath.
