IGCSE Tuition in Singapore

What is IGCSE?

Unless you are an international student, you most probably would not know what IGCSE is. An abbreviation of International General Certificate of Secondary Education, this international programme was developed by Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (CAIE), 1988. This comprehensive two-year programme that is accompanied by a final examination, follows an international examination curriculum commonly adopted by most international schools in globally. Equivalent in standard to the GCE ‘O’ levels taken by most secondary school students in Singapore, the International GCSE is taken at Year 4 (Grade 10), which is equivalent to Secondary 4 in Singapore’s national school system. Upon getting an IGCSE qualification, students may proceed with the GCE ‘A’ levels, SAT, International Baccalaureate (IB) programme, and various other certifications.

What does the IGCSE curriculum cover?

The IGCSE curriculum is extensive, offering a variety of academic routes to explore. This is especially beneficial for learners with a wide range of abilities, including those whose first language is not English. There are over 70 subjects, which include 30 languages, and schools can offer them in any combination. This content-rich programme develops knowledge, understanding, and skills in the following areas:

  • Subject content
  • Application of knowledge and understanding to new and unfamiliar situations
  • Intellectual enquiry
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  • Working and communicating in English
  • Influencing outcomes
  • Cultural awareness

While the syllabuses are international in outlook, they retain a local relevance. They are created specifically for an international student body and avoids cultural bias. Assessment includes written, oral, coursework, and practical assessments.While the syllabuses are international in outlook, they retain a local relevance since the specific schools are involved in the development of the IGCSE curriculum.

Differences between IGCSE and GCE ‘O’ levels

GCE ‘O’ levels offer less coursework compared to the International GCSEs, which uses a variety of assessment techniques to test oral and practical skills, problem-solving, and application of skills, knowledge, and understanding. In addition, the latter rewards students for positive achievements e.g. what they know, understand and can do. The IGCSE also prepares students for progression to employment or further study.

On the other hand, some ‘O’ level syllabus was developed to meet specific local needs – this includes the mandatory mother tongue languages such as Chinese, Malay, and Tamil. The focus of ‘O’ level languages is on writing and reading skills. Also, thorough School-Based Science Practical Assessment (SPA) exams are limited to students doing pure ‘O’ level sciences.

Frequently Asked Questions about the IGCSEs in Singapore

1. What is the difference between IGCSE and GCSE?

Although the academic demands and standards of both these examinations might share similarities, the context in which their curriculum is set varies. The Cambridge International GCSE is tailored to an international student-body, thus offering a wider range of subjects including multiple languages. Beyond a subject-to-subject comparison, the UK GCSEs have a compulsory coursework component, which is optional in an IGCSE programme.

2. What are the benefits of taking the IGCSEs?

For one, standards of the IGCSEs are recognised internationally, even by esteemed universities. Being one of the most recognised qualifications, this programme is a stepping stone for many students who are looking to take their tertiary education overseas. With many universities in the UK having the Cambridge A Levels and Cambridge IGCSEs as their standard entry requirements, and European universities as well as North American colleges considering the grades of this highly-regarded qualification, this is a good alternative to the standard secondary education.

3. What to look for in IGCSE tuition classes?

Beyond tuition rates, look for a suitable tutor who is experienced with the IGCSE syllabus. If they apply proven exam preparatory methodologies when teaching classes, that will always work in your favour as well.
