The syllabuses are international in outlook, but retain a local relevance. The Extended curriculum has been designed for the more academically able. For learners, Cambridge IGCSE helps improve performance by developing skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving.
Some subjects will retain coursework on a non-assessed basis, with the completion of certain experiments in science subjects being assumed in examinations, and teacher reporting of spoken language participation for English GCSEs as a separate report.
These were a precursor to the later reforms. However, some qualifications from the English boards are available as designated qualifications in some circumstances, due to not being available from WJEC.
They have been created specifically for an international student body and avoid cultural bias.
Encouraging learners to engage with a variety of subjects, and make connections between them, is fundamental to our approach. The exact qualifications taken by students vary from school to school and student to student, but schools are encouraged to offer at least one pathway that leads to qualification for the English Baccalaureaterequiring GCSEs in English language, English literature, mathematics, 2 science GCSEs, a modern or ancient language, and either history or geography.

The highest grade, 1, was considered equivalent to an O-Level C grade or above, and achievement of this grade often indicated that the student could have taken an O-Level course in the subject to achieve a higher qualification.
Below 5 there was a U ungraded grade.
Other subjects, especially religious studies, computer science, or physical education, may be compulsory in some schools as these subjects form part of the National Curriculum at Key Stage 4. The CSE was graded on a numerical scale from 1 to 5, with 1 being the highest, and 5 being the lowest passing grade.
CCEA qualifications are not available in England. Over time, as deregulation allowed schools to choose which boards to use, mergers and closures led to only 5 examination boards remaining today. Starting from a foundation of core subjects, it is easy to add breadth and cross-curricular perspectives.
The science reforms, in particular, mean that single-award "science" and "additional science" options are no longer available, being replaced with a double award "combined science" option graded on the scale to and equivalent to 2 GCSEs.
We help schools build a curriculum around their specific needs. Other removed qualifications include a variety of design technology subjects, which are reformed into a single "design and technology" subject with multiple options, and various catering and nutrition qualifications, which are folded into "food technology".

Controversy[ edit ] The board has been criticized for inconsistent marking of tests, with graded results often being out of line with predicted results. To take into account differing abilities, there is a choice between Core and Extended curriculum papers in some subjects.
It requires 2 passes in Languages, and one pass in every other group whilst the seventh subject be in any group to be qualified for an award. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information.
