Intro To GCSE Course

We provide Online International GCSE courses in English and Maths for those looking to gain or improve on those grades they missed first time round.

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (abbreviated as IGCSE) is an academically rigorous, English language curriculum which is offered to students to prepare them for further study. It is based on the GCE O-Level and is recognised internationally as being equivalent to the GCSE. Our IGCSE courses are accredited by OCR and City & Guilds (functional skills only).

The IGCSE is predominantly exam-based and is designed to test knowledge in individual subjects in the same way as Advanced Placement exams and SAT Subject Tests. For this reason, it is also a viable option for many home-schooling educators or in Adult education, when one is seeking a qualification but has no time to attend full-time school classes. Its academic worth is comparable to many Secondary School curricula worldwide, such as England’s GCSE, the American GED or High school diploma, Hong Kong’s HKCEE and Singapore’s O-Level.

The IGCSE prepares students for further academic study, including progression to AS Level and A Level study and international equivalents. It is recognised by academic institutions and employers around the world and is considered by many institutions as equivalent to the standard GCSE.

Our IGCSEs are supported for 12 months, however your learning programme is completely flexible, so you can study at a pace that suits you. You work through the materials comprising of bite sized chunks – completing reading, exercises and assessments – until you reach the end of the course when you do past paper style assessments (which are marked by your tutor) to determine your readiness to sit the exam proper. IGCSE exams are available in January and June of each year and must be sat at an approved Examination Centre.
