You can start our IGCSE homeschooling courses at any time of the year

The IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds.  And Cambridge qualifications are recognised by universities and employers around the world.

Our courses will prepare your child for the Cambridge IGCSE exams.  Your child’s choice of IGCSE subjects can have a major impact on their future education and career.  For advice on this choice please see CHOOSING YOUR IGCSE SUBJECTS

Cambridge Exams are held in May/June and in October/November each year, with the May/June sitting being the more widely available. A March exam is also available to students sitting exams in India.

Students usually take our IGCSE courses over one year (up to 4 subjects) or over two years (5 or more subjects). For more details see IGCSE Exam Information   and take a look at our IGCSE and A LEVEL EXAM RESULTS

The Cambridge IGCSE:

•    is equivalent to the UK GCSE and leads directly to the Cambridge GCE Advanced (A) Level

•    may be taken in the UK and in over 150 countries

•    is assessed by a final exam, making it particularly suitable for study at home.  There is no “coursework”

•    has no lower or upper age limit, and we welcome Adult Learners

 See Cambridge IGCSE for further information about the Cambridge Board.

 

Our Cambridge IGCSE courses include:

  • Well-illustrated course books providing the core knowledge and understanding of each subject, usually endorsed by Cambridge
  • Access to Canvas, our learning management system, with stimulating online and offline resources
  • Assignments to complete at regular intervals throughout the course
  • Fast and helpful assignment feedback from Tutors (within 3 – 5 working days)
  • A Progress Manager who will monitor your child’s progress and who is available at all times for advice and help

Hours of Study

Our IGCSE courses take approximately 150 hours of study, plus the time needed for preparation of each assignment (8 – 12 assignments per subject).

Please note that the time could be longer or shorter than this depending on your child’s ability as a learner, their organisational skills, and the support they receive at home.

Study skills sessions can be booked for those students who need a bit of extra help organising and structuring their studies.

Our promises to you

  • Should your child wish to retake the exam because their result in any subject has fallen short of grades A* – C, we will provide full support at no extra charge for them to prepare for the next available examination
  • Your child will have two years in which to complete their IGCSE course. Should they wish to defer their exam, for any reason, beyond the original exam date, they may do so for a small additional fee

Gemma Langley talks about her role as a Tutor.

David Fomin, IGCSE Student, UK

Wolsey Hall provided me exactly with what I needed at the time – a flexible, accessible way to study for my IGCSEs. Their Tutors are excellent and were quick to provide thorough and constructive feedback on my assignments, as well as supplying me with important advice and resources on exam technique, ensuring that I was as prepared as possible. I am very pleased with my IGCSE grades – four of which are A*s, then an A and a B. They allowed me to go on to study A Levels, which I would not be doing right now had I not found Wolsey Hall. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a flexible way to study and is perhaps unable to attend a public or private school, or simply wants to ensure a quality learning experience, and is capable of mostly self-motivated learning with the aid of Tutor feedback and online resources.

ANDREW YEOH, HOMESCHOOLING PARENT MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA

Wolsey Hall Oxford's IGCSE courses are excellent for students who wish to homeschool. The step by step programme of study, with designated textbooks and online resources ensured that my daughter understood the concepts and their application in a logical manner. She also benefitted from completing the assignments and past exam papers. She worked hard... asking questions, getting feedback from her Tutors and sharpening her exam technique. Without the Wolsey Hall Oxford programme, she would not have achieved her fantastic results (six A*'s in her IGCSEs in 2016).
