IGCSE The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is usually offered by schools that follow the National Curriculum of England and Wales (the British Curriculum). The IGCSE is an internationally recognised and valued qualification that is an excellent preparation for pupils who intend to go on to study for A-Levels or the IB (International Baccalaureate). Schools from around the world have contributed to the development of IGCSE programmes and it is therefore a truly international qualification. IGCSE courses are available in more than 120 countries and in over 70 subjects with many being offered at both core and extended level, making them suitable for students of all abilities. Programmes of study are updated regularly and are designed to be accessible for both native English speakers and those whose first language is not English. Examining bodies provide a large range of resources for students, both online and in print, and schools who offer IGCSEs use
