Qualifications that are accepted around the world
IGCSEs and International GCSEs are the world’s most popular international qualifications for 14- to 16-year-olds. They are your gateway to higher education or professional studies in your home country or overseas. They can help you:
- get a place at college or university at home or abroad
- find better career opportunities
- pass the language tests for emigrating or studying in another country*
- develop skills that help you lead a more exciting and successful life.
The British Council helps more than two million people take international exams every year. We can offer you support and guidance – from choosing subjects to exam registration.
*For example, achieving a Grade C in IGCSE English is often enough to satisfy the language requirements for some universities in English-speaking nations.
