What is IGCSE or O Level?
GCE is one of the most internationally recognised qualifications. You can take this qualification at the Ordinary (O)/IGCSE or the Advanced (A) levels, depending on what you need it for and the course you intend to follow. The Ordinary level has been replaced by IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education), it is available to international students. We advise you to take a preparation course that specifically follows a syllabus if you want to take either of these exams
Who can take IGCSE exam?
Anyone who has completed 10th grade can sit for IGCSE Examination. In Bangladesh, most of the schools are following either the Pearson Edexcel examinations’ or the Cambridge Assessment International Educations’ (CAIE) syllabus. In InCIS we are also following both of the syllabuses for our students. Students can take tuition for both of the syllabi from us to sit for their IGCSE and O-Level examination.
