IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) is one of the most popular international certifications globally as well as in Singapore for secondary school students. It is equivalent to O-levels, or UK GCSEs, and most International Schools in Singapore offer IGCSE as part of their curriculum.

IGCSE offers a flexible curriculum with over 70 subjects available for students to choose from. Students are required to take a minimum of 5 and a maximum of 14 subjects for their IGCSEs (certain schools might have their own suggested/maximum subject numbers, so please make sure to check).

The core subjects are English, Mathematics and Sciences. Students can also choose other subjects ranging from Social Sciences (commonly Accounting, Business Studies, Economics, Sociology) to Arts & Technology (commonly Computer Studies, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Art & Design).

  • Core Subjects English, Mathematics and Sciences
  • Other Subjects Students can also choose other subjects ranging from Social Sciences (commonly Accounting, Business Studies, Economics, Sociology) to Arts & Technology (commonly Computer Studies, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Art & Design)
