IGCSE Exams and Information

What is IGCSE?

International GCSEs (IGCSE) and GCSEs in England are different qualifications. GCSEs are based on content specified by the government and must be assessed in line with Ofqual’s rules. The awarding organisations that offer International GCSEs each decide the content for those qualifications and how that content is assessed. Read more about IGCSE on Ofqual Blog.

Pearson Edexcel International GCSE (9–1) qualifications are comparable to the UK GCSE, with appropriate international content and assessment that will enable successful progression for learners. Read more about Pearson Edexcel IGCSE.
