Cambridge IGCSE English Literature:
A UK school case study
Sherborne School in Dorset, UK, teaches Cambridge IGCSE English Literature. How are they finding the course so far?
Cambridge IGCSE is already the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 – 16 year olds. It is taken by learners in over 140 countries around the world. Over 900 schools in the UK are now teaching Cambridge IGCSE, and it continues to gain popularity with more and more joining the Cambridge community. Why?
Cambridge IGCSE is linear. It is designed to be taught holistically to allow longer term development of ideas for students. Learners take all exams at the end of the course, which gives more time for teaching and learning.
Excellent preparation for further study. Schools tell us it prepares learners extremely well for A Level and Cambridge Pre-U by developing a solid foundation of knowledge and skills.
International context. Learners are assessed alongside their peers from around the world, including USA, New Zealand, India, China, Spain and Switzerland.
Included in school performance tables and the EBac. Many Cambridge IGCSE syllabuses are approved by Ofqual.
