IGCSES are fast becoming the level 2 qualification of choice and will not be affected by the educational reforms that will result in the restructuring of the current GCSEs.
IGCSEs contain no controlled assessment components.
IGCSE Information and Communication Technology (ICT) contains skills assessment tasks that are conducted under supervision, but do not contain the procedural requirements of research, task setting and task marking that are necessary for controlled assessment components at GCSE level.
IGCSEs are available twice per year, for CIE and EDEXCEL, therefore candidates can resit IGCSE subjects, in the same academic year.
IGCSEs are ideal for candidates hoping to study EDEXCEL A level and CIE A levels especially the alternative to practical A level written options.
These options area available to international students studying at International centres, outside the UK, and at British Council offices in Commonwealth countries
