IGCSE provides a broad study programme by drawing subjects from 5 areas:
- Humanities and Social Sciences
- 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.
