Cambridge International IGCSE
Welcome to TPIS
The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is one of the most acknowledged qualifications worldwide. Cambridge IGCSE courses are renowned for developing vital educational skills, including knowledge recall, oral skills, problem-solving, initiative, teamwork and investigative skills. The resulting qualification provides a foundation for higher level courses, such as Cambridge A level and AS Levels, of Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education; the North American Advanced Placement Programme and the International Baccalaureate.
Cambridge IGCSE caters for different levels of ability with a choice between core and extended papers in many subjects. The core curriculum is based on an overview of the subject and is suitable for students who are expected to achieve grades C to G. The extended curriculum is more challenging and designed for students who are expected to achieve grades A to C. Grades achieved through either route possess equivalent value.
