International General Certificate of Secondary Education
The IGCSE programme is more practical and application-based. It has a broader spectrum of subjects that lead to all-round development. IGCSE examinations test students' knowledge, not their memory and speed. The focus of the IG pedagogy is on 'how to learn' rather than 'what to learn'. IGCSE helps the students to develop key learning, problem-solving and investigative skills by encouraging an active, critical and questioning approach to study. With a choice of core and extended papers in most subjects, the IGCSE is suitable for students with different levels of ability.
Assessment for Cambridge IGCSE includes written and oral tests, coursework and practical assessment. Coursework is set and marked by the teacher and externally moderated by Cambridge. The Students appear for their Final Exams when they are in Class X in May-June.
