IGCSE Programme

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is a balanced international curriculum conducted by the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate. The curriculum is suitable for students of all nationalities and all levels of ability. It provides an ideal preparation for higher level courses such as GCE, 'A' level, SAT, ACT and IB.


The IGCSE is used by schools in over 100 countries. It is recognized as equivalent to the British 'O' level and as a qualification for matriculation by Universities in many countries. The examination is typically taken at the end of two years, in Grade X.

IGCSE Subject Options 2014-2015:

IGCSE provides a broad study programme by drawing subjects from 5 areas:
  • Languages
  • Humanities and Social Sciences
  • Sciences
  • Mathematics
  • Creative, Technical and Vocational 

A student who writes examinations in a minimum of 5 subjects qualifies for the IGCSE certificate. The ICE Certification (International Certificate of Education) is awarded by the CIE for the recommended combination of subjects in the IGCSE examinations. At Indus, all students are required to prepare for this certification.


ICE is a group award of the IGCSE that requires the study of subjects drawn from 5 different IGCSE subject groups. A student must take at least 7 subjects, including 2 languages and 1 subject from each of the other subject groups given below.
