IGCSE-UK stands for International General Certificate of Secondary Education. The globally accepted and approved pattern is slightly different from the curriculum that we are known about. The IGCSE-UK is a 10 Level program for students. The IGCSE-UK assessments are however conducted only by UK approved assessment boards in which Edexcel is one of the 5 boards by the government of UK to offer IGCSE-UK pattern in UK. The assessments that are conducted by IGCSE-UK Schools are not just written but include variety of tests like oral tests or even grading based on overall achievement. A practical approach is what one can find in this pattern. The grades are allocated to students based on their overall performance and they may vary from A+, A to G, where A+ is considered to be extraordinary performance and G would stand for Failure.
