The IGCSE or the International General Certificate of Secondary Education is an English language based examination based on the UK GCSE curriculums. They are the world’s most popular globally recognised qualifications for high school students. They enable learners from around the world to be granted access to international and local tertiary universities.
Cambridge has designed the IGCSEs to be taught as a two-year course for candidates aged 14 to 16 years. Despite this, a candidate may complete the course over a different timescale since there are no formal age regulations. The GCSE or IGCSE courses are typically taken by secondary students between years 10 and 11 in the UK, which is generally accepted to be equivalent to grades 10 and 11.
These mathematics lessons are for learners who intend to write the Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics 0580 Core Papers 1 and 3 and are looking for applicable self-study content, resources and/or revision. The Core curriculum provides a full overview of Mathematics at a high school level.
A learner is only eligible to achieve grades C to G when electing to write the Core papers and it isn’t possible to achieve higher than a C grade at this point. In order to achieve a higher grade (higher than C), learners need to take the Extended syllabus also available within Maths Online. Learners who fail to meet the minimum satisfactory standard for the Core curriculum (Grade G) will be ungraded.
On the other hand, the Cambridge IGCSE Maths (Extended) lessons are for learners who intend to write the Cambridge IGCSE Mathematics 0580 Extended Papers 2 and 4. This is suitable for learners who are looking for applicable self-study content, resources and/or revision.
The Extended curriculum is made up of the Core curriculum and additional/extended topics. It is intended for the more mathematically able learner and leads naturally into higher education (Cambridge International As and A levels for example) or professional training. A learner who elects to write the extended curriculum is eligible to achieve grades A* to E. Students who fail to meet the minimum satisfactory standard for the Extended curriculum (Grade E) will be ungraded.
