Then The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) could help you. You can register and take either the London Examinations International or Cambridge International Examinations with us.

What is IGCSE?
The highly sought-after IGCSE is a qualification that is taken in over 100 countries worldwide. It provides you with the basic qualifications for entrance to higher and professional studies in Morocco and other countries. IGCSE is equivalent in standard to the British GCSE and is recognised as evidence of ability by academic institutions and employers around the world.

What are the areas that it covers?
IGCSE/GCSE provides a broad study programme by drawing subjects from five areas: Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Creative, Technical and Vocational. Within the curriculum there is a balanced mix of practical experience and theoretical knowledge. Differing abilities are accounted for with a choice of Core and Extended papers in most subjects, making IGCSE/GCSE suitable for all students.

What is the target age?
IGCSE/GCSE has been designed for 13 to 18 year olds and aims to prepare students for further academic success, including progression to A and AS Level study, and equip students with the skills needed for immediate employment.

Why should I take IGCSE?
The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is one of the most recognised qualifications in the world. IGCSE courses are renowned for developing vital educational skills, including recall of knowledge, oral skills, problem solving, initiative, team work and investigative skills.

What does IGCSE qualify me for?
The resulting qualification provides a foundation for higher level courses, such as A and AS Levels, the Advanced International Certificate of Education, the North American Advanced Placement programme and the International Baccalaureate. IGCSE caters for different levels of ability with a choice between core and extended papers in many subjects.
