How Is Cambridge IGCSE Taught?


At Millennium Schools, students are encouraged to study a wide range of subjects at IGCSE level, at the same time. In order to follow a broad and balanced curriculum, many students take courses from each of the IGCSE groups particularly if they’re aiming to go on to further education. This can lead to the award of the International Certificate of Education; an additional qualification that recognizes students who pass exams in seven or more subjects, including two languages and one subject from each of the other groups.
