Studying for IGCSE’s at Mougins School
What are IGCSE’s?
IGCSE stands for International General Certificate of Secondary Education. These are the officially authorised examinations required to complete the secondary stage of the British education system. Students follow a two-year programme that leads to externally set, marked and accredited examinations from the University of Cambridge and Pearson Edexcel. IGCSE’s are an internationally recognised qualification that, in combination with A-levels, can determine a pupil’s chances of attending a well-respected university.
