Trust-EdTen SAT Course
IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education)

Overview

Found as a basis of Secondary 2 level for students age 14-16 years old in UK. IGCSE provides wide range of subjects for candidates who wish to build up their foundation towards their higher education such as A-levels and IB diploma. IGCSE is equivalent to Matthayom 3-4 in Thailand’s curriculum. A term time in IGCSE normally runs from around September to June in each academic year.

In Thailand there are two syllabus options available for candidates, CIE (Cambridge International Examinations) and EDEXCEL. In some subjects, they are divided into two levels of study; core and extended for CIE and foundation and higher for EDEXCEL. The core/foundation is aimed at an intermediate level of knowledge while the extended/higher provides a more advanced and challenging route. Please note that students who wish to apply for examination will need to specify which level they intend to do in their application forms. In addition student who acquires a minimum grade C of at least 5 IGCSE subjects is eligible to apply for a certificate of Matthayom 6 equivalency issued by Thailand’s Ministry of Education, which can then be used for continuation in his/her study in Thailand’s universities.
