About IGCSEs

IGCSEs are awarded by Edexcel, the qualification branch of the UK’s largest awarding body Pearson. More than 3.4 million students study Edexcel qualifications worldwide.

IGCSEs are offered in many independent and private schools in the Middle East, Asia, the UK and worldwide, and are the most popular international qualifications aimed at 14- to 16-year-olds.

While IGCSEs are traditionally studied by students in secondary school, many older learners choose to study them in order to fill in gaps in their school education or prepare for further national or international study.

ICS Learn is the UK’s most trusted online learning provider, with a Trustpilot rating of 9.4/10 from 3000+ independent student reviews. Students can study anywhere, at any time, from mobile, tablet or laptop, making it easy to shape learning around their life.
