IGCSE stands for International General Certificate of Secondary Education and the Cambridge IGCSE is popular worldwide, including Malaysia.
The Cambridge IGCSE curriculum uses the method of ‘student-centred learning’ to help develop skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, to make them more independent in their life-long journey of learning.
In Malaysia, most home-schools or private learning centres use the Cambridge IGCSE and students are assessed based on exams by the exam-board chosen by the school.
The IGCSE exams are for students between the ages of 14 and 16, which signal the completion of their High School education.
The IGCSE certificate is recognized by most universities world-wide, which opens the doors for many students who wish to study abroad.
