Guided Learning Hours

Cambridge IGCSEs are designed based on students having about 130 guided learning hours for each subject during the course, but this is for guidance only. The number of hours a learner needs to achieve the qualification may vary depending on their previous experience of the subject.

Exams

Depending on when you are sitting your exams, we would normally recommend that they are booked at least 5-6 months prior to when they are taking place. This helps prevent you from paying late deadline fees and also enables you to secure a place.

Students can enter in the June and November exam series. Timetables and centres can be accessed through your portal.

Grading

Grades A*, A, B, C, D, E, F or G indicate the standard a candidate achieved at Cambridge IGCSE. A* is the highest and G is the lowest.

Retakes

Candidates can retake the whole qualification as many times as they want to. This is a linear qualification so candidates cannot re-sit individual components.

The IGCSE is an international alternative to the GCSE and as the subjects are normally exam based only, make them ideal for students who are unable to attend a local school or college. This means there is no need to carry out science practical exams or find a school that will mark and authenticate your coursework.

IGCSEs are internationally recognised and as well as being available in the UK, are also available worldwide. They are recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and are an international passport to progression and success.

We want exams to be as competitively priced for our learners as possible and therefore that is why we direct them to the examination centres rather than charge upfront fees.
