International General Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE)

Arabian Pearl Gulf School is a Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) Centre authorized to offer the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) for 14-16 year olds. Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:


  1. Subject content
  2. Applying knowledge and understanding to familiar and new situations
  3. Intellectual enquiry
  4. Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  5. Working and communicating in English
  6. Influencing outcomes
  7. Cultural awareness


Cambridge IGCSE is taken in over 100 countries worldwide and are widely recognised by higher education institutions and employers around the world as evidence of academic ability. Cambridge IGCSE is equivalent to the GCSE in the United Kingdom. In some parts of the world, schools use Cambridge IGCSE as an international alternative to the local government's examination.

Each learner's performance is benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades (A*-G). In some countries, IGCSE qualifications will satisfy the entry requirements for university. In others, they are widely used as a preparation for A Level, AS, International Baccalaureate and US Advanced Placement courses.

Grade C in IGCSE English (both First Language and Second Language) satisfies the English proficiency requirements of many universities in the UK and other anglophone countries.
