Who is Cambridge?

Commonwealth International School learners write the Cambridge International Exams (CIE) for overseas students. As a department of Cambridge University, Cambridge Assessment is respected and trusted worldwide, managing three world class examination boards, and maintaining the highest standards in educational assessment and learning.

What qualification does your student get?

IGCSEs are International GCSEs – they’re equivalent to regular GCSEs and are offered in many independent and private schools in the UK. We teach them because they’re assessed mainly through exams, not coursework, so they’re more suited to online learning.


Most students do two courses:

IGCSE (International General Certificate of Education) takes 18 months – 2 years to complete and is for students from 14 – 16 years of age. This is the same as grades 10 and 11 in local schools although the subject content is different. Typically a student will take 5 to 7 subjects on this level.

Following this students do the AS Levels normally from about 16 – 19 years of age. This is also an 18 month – 2 year course and is the equivalent of Grade 12. Typically a student will take 3 to 5 subjects on this level.

NOTE 1: If your student does very well on a subject at IGCSE level (B or A) they can “carry” it over as an AS level subject. This means that one of their IGCSE subjects can count for their AS Level.

NOTE 2: Please contact your proposed institution of further study for specific entrance requirements.
