UNIVERSITY OF CAMBRIDGE, UK

IGCSE GRADE 9 & 10

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is the world's most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year-olds. It develops successful students, giving them excellent preparation for their next steps in education, and equips them with invaluable skills for future life. The challenging course enables students to learn more than facts. It encourages students to ask challenging questions and to develop intercultural understanding while maintaining a strong sense of their own identity and culture.

The IGCSE syllabus is broad-based and has a very strong stress on application-based learning. It lays emphasis on inculcating the spirit of enquiry. It teaches you to teach yourself as opposed to being taught. This approach is what makes it very special, not only for those planning to study abroad, but also for those who define education as the creation of an independent thinking mind.

The IGCSE programmes are recognized around the world and in India. The curriculum, pedagogy and activities focus on international perspectives making students global citizens in the true sense of the word. The curriculum contains five groups from which the students may choose as per their inclinations and talents. At the end of the programme students are assessed by the school as well as the IGCSE examiners. Kindly refer to the chart below to know the subjects available:

In some countries, IGCSE qualifications will satisfy the entry requirements for university as well. In others, they are widely used as a preparation for CBSE, IB Diploma Programme, A Level, AS Level, and US Advanced Placement courses.  During the course of the programme the students will be provided Career Counselling and guidance for selection of subjects, attending summer courses to assess interests and inclinations and general exposure for future prospects. The students will benefit immensely by studying challenging syllabi formulated and taught by specially trained teachers who are connected to the world and get the benefit of the best teaching practices through the Online Curriculum Centre. Once a student is armed with an IGCSE education, there is virtually no looking back.
