Discovery Centre is a certified centre for the renowned Cambridge IGCSE, which is the international equivalent of the Cambridge O Level. It provides a broad and flexible programme of study covering subjects from a variety of areas: Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences and Mathematics. Cambridge IGCSE allows teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant in different regions.
Schools worldwide have helped develop the Cambridge IGCSE, which provides excellent preparation for the IB Diploma Programme, as well as other progression routes. It incorporates the best in international education for learners at this level and develops in line with changing needs through regular updates and extensions.
As it is a qualification based on individual subjects of study, one receives an “IGCSE” qualification for each subject one takes.
Schools worldwide have different expectations for their students about how many IGCSEs should be taken. A typical “core” curriculum for IGCSE candidates includes a first language, second language, mathematics and the sciences. IGCSE candidates then choose a number of additional courses ranging from subjects in the social sciences to the creative arts.
Cambridge IGCSE encourages learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning. It develops learners’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving, giving them excellent preparation for the next stage in their education. Schools can build a core curriculum, extend it to suit their learners and introduce cross-curricular perspectives.
