Our qualifications are designed for all students and are accessible for a wide range of abilities.
Cambridge IGCSE is the world's (and India's) most popular international curriculum for 14 - 16 year olds. Cambridge IGCSE gives schools the 'building blocks' they need to make the right decisions in curriculum design, planning and delivery. Cambridge IGCSE, regularly updated and extended, offers schools a wide range of well-resourced and supported courses.
Indian students regularly gain the top marks in the world for IGCSE subjects.
Schools, universities and employers worldwide recognise Cambridge international qualifications as a mark of quality. Cambridge International AS and A Levels are accepted as proof of the abilities required to enter a degree course. Each year, thousands of Cambridge International A Level students from India and around the world gain places at top universities, in countries including the UK, US, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia and India. Cambridge international qualifications open up national and international career opportunities in business, engineering and medicine among many others.

More and more schools in India are realising the benefits of starting early with Cambridge. Cambridge Primary is for young children aged 5 - 11, and it helps them to develop core skills of numeracy, literacy and understanding scientific observation. Cambridge Secondary 1, for students aged 11 - 14, builds on these skills in Mathematics, English and Science, and prepares students for their first external examinations.
