Cambridge IGCSE

Why choose IGCSE or GCSE?

Wolsey Hall courses lead to the Cambridge exam for all IGCSE subjects except for Psychology (Edexcel) which leads to a GCSE from Pearson Edexcel.  

The Cambridge IGCSE and UK GCSEs are equivalent qualifications and both can lead directly to Cambridge GCE Advanced level and Pearson Edexcel A Levels. A levels are accepted as entry qualifications by universities around the world. 

All our IGCSE and GCSE qualifications are assessed by a final exam, making it particularly suitable for study at home. There is no “coursework”. 

For further information please see the Cambridge Exam Board and Pearson Edexcel website.

Cambridge IGCSE subjects


Wolsey Hall Oxford provides a broad range of Cambridge IGCSE subjects for you to choose from including Maths, English, Sciences, Humanities and Languages.

Many students at IGCSE Level have not yet formed a clear career path, so taking a good mix of subjects will enable students to keep their options open as they approach their A level choices.

The Cambridge IGCSE course material and exams are presented in English.

Cambridge IGCSE exams

Cambridge IGCSE examination sittings occur twice a year in June and November. There is an additional sitting in March for India only.

These exams can be taken in the UK and in over 150 countries worldwide.

Results are issued in August and January.

Exams are graded A* to G with A* being the highest grade. Typically universities and employers would consider a Grade C to be a pass.
