NOTE THAT YOU CAN START AN IGCSE COURSE AT ANY TIME OF THE YEAR
Our courses will prepare your child for the Cambridge IGCSE exams. 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. Students can be confident that their qualifications will be understood and valued throughout their education and career, in their home country and internationally.
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).
The Cambridge IGCSE:
• is equivalent to the UK GCSE exam and leads directly on 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;
• has no lower or upper age limit, and we welcome Adult Learners.
See Cambridge IGCSE for further information about the exam.
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.
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.
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).
