IGCSE Courses

The IGCSE is a nationally recognised qualification that was originally designed as a secondary school qualification for pupils overseas, but has since been adopted by an increasing number of independent schools and colleges in the UK as a preference to the standard GCSE. Some standard GCSE Syllabus are not suitable for distance learning study as they require controlled assessments within the exam centre, but IGCSEs are assessed by exam only. IGCSEs are the same qualification level as a standard GCSE and can offer progression to 'A' Level, BTEC vocational courses, and other similar qualifications that are recognised internationally and by the University and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

Please Note: We strongly advise that candidates read our course guide, which explains in detail about the courses, possible exam dates and the procedures for being a private candidate and finding exam centres etc.
