The Cambridge IGCSE (extended) curriculum offers 70 courses, including 30 languages, for both IGCSE and ICE. These two credentials, however, differ in terms of course format and how they are given.

  • Individual Cambridge IGCSEs can be taken as separate topics. Students who pass at least seven Cambridge IGCSE topics, including two from Group 1 and one from each of Groups 2 to 5, are granted Cambridge ICE. Any of the syllabus categories can be used for the seventh topic.
  • IGCSE (extended) grades range from A* to E, whereas IGCSE core grades range from C to G for each course. ICE, on the other hand, awards spots for all courses taken in the categories of Distinction, Merit, and Pass.
  • Most schools provide Cambridge ICE certification because it is more organised and allows students to demonstrate competency across a wide variety of courses and abilities.

More details about Cambridge ICE

Students can qualify for Cambridge ICE in two series as long as they are completed within a 13-month timeframe. This would be from June to November or June the next year, or from November to June or November the following year. Students can repeat the tests in a second sitting, however the first sitting score will be used to calculate the Cambridge ICE certificate. A separate subject certificate will be issued for the result obtained at the second sitting.

If a student takes more than seven courses, the seven best results, regardless of subject or group, will be used to calculate the Cambridge ICE grade if the entry requirements for Cambridge ICE are met (passes in seven subjects, covering the five IGCSE subject groups and including two different languages).
