The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE): Developed by Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE, formerly Cambridge International Examinations – CIE), IGCSE examinations take place at the end of the course in Grade 10.
Cambridge International AS and A Levels: Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course, and Cambridge International AS Level is typically one year. AS and A Levels are subject-based qualifications – followed by assessments – that learners take in their last two years of high school (Grades 11 & 12).
For further information on CAIE, please refer to www.cie.org.uk Universities in the UK, US, Canada, India and about 150 other countries recognize the CAIE qualifications.
