International GCSEs


The General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) is a globally recognised school exam-based qualification that students usually take at age 16. The international version of this qualification is known as the International GCSE (IGCSE/IG).

Each course lasts about 1-2 years, with exams usually taken at the end of Grade 10 when students are aged 16. Between 6 to 9 subjects are commonly taken at the same time. These exams at the end of Grade 10 can be used as school-leaving certificates or can be used as the foundation for further study. 

For students who have completed Swiss lower secondary school, a fast track 1-year programme is available for entry into Swiss universities.
