CAMBRIDGE INTERNATIONAL EXAMINATIONS

IGCSE PROGRAM

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is one of the most recognized qualifications around the world. The IGCSE curriculum is balanced and flexible, and lends an international perspective to education. It offers a wider range of subjects and encourages high academic standards through a practical approach to teaching and learning. The course helps in developing crucial educational skills, including knowledge recap, oral skills, problem solving, team work and investigative skills, keeping in mind the differing abilities of students.

The IGCSE approach is rooted in active learning and its assessment models have been designed to reflect this orientation. IGCSE is designed to be taught as a two-year course for students aged between 14 to 17 years. Examinations are held in June and November each year with results issued in August and January respectively.

The resulting qualification provides a foundation for higher level courses, such as AS and A Levels. Cambridge IGCSE is recognized by universities and employers worldwide. Cambridge International AS / A Level is one of the most popular international examination for Grade XI and XII students which equips them with skill for further progression in University Level.

Students who have passed the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) with a minimum of five subjects including English as one of the subjects is considered eligible for admission to the First Year Pre-University Course of a PU College affiliated to the Department of Pre-University Education in Karnataka.
