Some information on the IGCSE exams
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an internationally recognised qualification for school students typically in the ages of 14-17.It is similar to GCSE in England,Wales, Ireland and Scotland. It was developed by University of Cambridge International Exams in 1988.The IGCSE is an international alternative to many popular national curriculum. It is a qualification based on individual subjects of study and is predominantly exam based. Its academic worth is comparable to many secondary schools including England's GCSE, American GED or high school diploma , Hong Kong's HKCEE and Singpore's Olevels.
It prepares students for further academic study including progression to Alevels, Pre University and IB Diploma etc..
We deem this IGCSE additional mathematics subject important and able to provide an excellent foundation for students to take on further pre university maths courses. Hence this is our first offering online and followed closely by the higher Alevel Maths.
Some information on Alevels
