CAMBRIDGE IGCSE


Cambridge IGCSE is widely recognised by higher education institutions and employers around the world as evidence of academic achievement.

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. The programme is more rigorous than the standard GCSE’s and broadens opportunities for students who wish to further their education either domestically or internationally. Assessment takes place at the end of the course and includes written, oral, practical assessment and coursework.

Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.

The St. Louis School is the only International High School offering a full IGCSE programme in Milan.

SUBJECT CHOICES


In the Cam­bridge IGCSE pro­gramme, your child's study in­cludes the­ory, some in­vest­ig­a­tion and ele­ments of prac­tical work in cer­tain areas. To at­tain high grades, stu­dents must demon­strate com­pet­ence in read­ing and writ­ing. Stu­dents nor­mally take nine IGCSE courses. ​At the end of a two-year period, your child will be as­sessed through stand­ard­ised ex­ams, marked by ex­amin­ing boards based in Eng­land. He or she will then be ex­tern­ally awar­ded an in­di­vidual sub­ject IGCSE cer­ti­fic­ate, which gives a use­ful bench­mark of per­form­ance at age 16. Our aca­demic pro­gramme takes place between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1.50 p.m. the stu­dents are re­quired to fol­low an ex­tra cur­ricular pro­gramme which will in­volve activ­it­ies over the two year period. The stu­dents may carry out these activ­it­ies in the af­ter­noons at school (2.30 to 5 p.m.), out­side school, or even dur­ing the hol­i­days. For each activ­ity the stu­dents are re­quired to re­cord their ex­per­i­ences, seek a su­per­visor and re­flect upon what they have learnt. A wide range of IGCSE sub­jects are avail­able and these are grouped in cur­riculum categories.


*Additional Mathematics is an extra IGCSE subject that will also be followed by the high ability Mathematicians.
