Several colleges worldwide require a combined degree of Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International A Levels to meet their eligibility criteria for admission. Many well-known colleges in the United States and Canada accept students with a grade ‘C’ or higher in Cambridge IGCSE. Cambridge IGCSE is considered equivalent to GCSE in countries such as the United Kingdom.
While making admission decisions, universities in the United Kingdom look at applicants’ Cambridge IGCSE results. It provides an alternative path for many individuals who want to continue their education in these countries. The IGCSE exam differs from other board exams because it emphasises practical skills. Students must concentrate on applying various ideas and case studies during the exams as they are graded based on analytical skills.
The board’s certification is widely recognised by numerous institutions worldwide, and in many cases, it is the means of entrance to the institute. Many institutions, particularly in the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada, demand a combination of Cambridge International A Levels and Cambridge IGCSE to get admission.
IGCSE is a two-year curriculum compared to one year for ICSE, CBSE, and state education boards. IGCSE allows students to choose their desired topics to a wider extent, including subjects of commerce and many humanitarian subjects that most other popular boards only provide at the high school level.
It also provides the IGCSE Core and IGCSE Extended Courses, recognising that not all students have the same affinity or interest in all topics. IGCSE has five subject categories, each with multiple subjects to choose from:
|English (Language and Literature)||English- First Language
English- Second Language
|Humanities & Social Sciences||Bangladesh Studies
|Business, Technical and Creative||Accounting
Art & Design
Design & Technology
Food & Nutrition
Information & Communication Technology
Travel & Tourism
On each topic, the certificate shows the grades earned, not whether the student passed or failed. Five ‘C’ or above marks show the candidates’ willingness to pursue +2 level qualifications such as the Class 12 CBSE, IB Diploma, Advanced Placement Diploma (USA), and so on.
Students can get information such as the exam pattern, syllabus, practical exams exam dates, etc., in the Cambridge Board brochure on the official website.
The Cambridge Board offers a diverse range of subjects and allows schools to choose how to present them to students. They assist schools in developing a curriculum that is appropriate for their culture, context, and ethos and that they can tailor to their specific needs. The exam pattern contains the break-up of the marking scheme. Below we have provided the Cambridge Board Lower Secondary Stage 8 exam pattern:
