This is a two year (10 and 11) course leading to the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations set by the Cambridge Assessment International Examinations in the UK.

Most students take IGCSE examinations in nine subjects. Mathematics, English Language and English Literature, and at least two Science subjects are compulsory. We also expect students to take at least one Humanities subject and a Modern Foreign Language. The subject choices within this framework are flexible, and the individual preferences vary from learner to learner.

Information about each subject offered at IGCSE level at School of the Nations can easily be accessed from the office upon request.
