The exam board recommendation for the iGCSE course is 120 – 180 guided learning hours over two years.
We are an approved partner with the Tutors & Exams private exam centre and as such our students are able to apply to book with the UK centres with preferential rates. Please get in touch with us for our T&E partner code once enrolled should you wish to sit your exams with them.
Summer 2022 Exams
We are aware that CIE, like other exam boards have taken the decision to adjust their assessment criteria for this coming summer. At present we are awaiting further detail of how this will affect our students.
Changes to Specifications
We are aware that CIE, like other exam boards have taken the decision to update their specifications. Your exam codes will remain the same, but students studying specifications where the exams are sat in May/June 2023 or later will be undertaking the updated specification which has been significantly extended. While it may still be possible to complete this in a year, we strongly recommend that parents plan for students to study across two academic years due to the content which now reflects the UK GCSE specifications.
Several updates have been made for the 2022 exam series and these are reflected in our current course.
Content for the updated specification is clearly highlighted in the course.
