INFORMATION ABOUT SITTING CAMBRIDGE (CAIE) IGCSE EXAMS

You will need to apply to a Cambridge IGCSE exam centre for you or your child to take their exams. We can help you find your most convenient exam centre. But you will need to apply to the exam centre yourself. We cannot do this for you.  Please ask for our lists of UK or International exam centres if you do not have them already.

For IGCSE Computer Science the exam centre must provide you with pre-release material which will form part of the final assessment. When you register for the exam, ask the exam centre when you will receive this.

Exams for IGCSE French/Spanish/German English as a Second Language include an oral component. You should ensure that the centre you have chosen has the facility to assess this.

Finding a Cambridge Exam Centre

Your Student Progress Manager will gladly provide you a list of Cambridge exam centres for your country or region. These centres have told us that they accept private candidates. You may also find a local exam centre at Cambridge Exam board. In countries where there is a British Council exam centre, this will usually be a good choice.

BOOKING YOUR EXAM ENTRY

Before you register for your/your child’s exams, your Student Progress Manager will send you the exam timetable with exam codes and a subject timetable.

There is a deadline for booking exam entry. Some exam centres will accept late entries, but the fees will be higher. Exam centres will advise you of their exam fees, and these can vary between centres.

For more information, see Exam Guidelines for Private Candidates.

Examination Entry Deadlines

The deadline for entry for the May/June sitting – 31st January We strongly advise you to make contact with a centre as soon as possible, as centres often have limited spaces for private candidates.

The deadline for entry for the October/November sitting – 31st July Do book exam entries before the end of June as school centres close for the summer holidays. Many centres will only accept candidates for the May/June sitting.  In Oct/Nov you may need to travel further, to a Tutorial College (in the UK) or to an International School outside the UK. Exam fees may also be higher.

The deadline for entry for the March sitting (India only) – 1st November

Access Arrangements

If you have a special need and require access arrangements, you should contact your chosen exam centre at the earliest opportunity. Not all exam centres can accept candidates requiring access arrangements and some may charge additional fees for doing so.  Access arrangements that may be available include: extra time in the exam room; a separate room; a scribe; the use of a laptop; modified papers (coloured/enlarged paper); arrangements for candidates with other disabilities. Centres can also advise you what evidence may be required to support an application for access arrangements.

Which Exam Sitting to Choose

Note that many centres will only accept candidates for the May/June sitting. So we strongly recommend this sitting unless it is not an option. If you need help in finding an exam centre please contact either Nicky Murray (UK Exams Officer) or Nuha Lami (International Exams Officer)

Donna Hogan - IGCSE Parent

I would recommend Wolsey Hall Oxford to anyone considering homeschooling. Each course has plenty of resources on canvas and the course books are very informative. Any questions or help that we needed (preparing and arranging exams etc) have always been dealt with by the friendly tutors and student progress manager. My daughter achieved excellent IGCSE results and is now taking an A Level course.
