The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)

If you are planning to study abroad, let’s start your journey with the IGCSE - the world’s most popular international qualification for upper secondary - officially launched at the Bilingual Canadian International School starting from the academic year 2021 - 2022. 

What is IGCSE? 

  • The IGCSE program is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-olds. This broadens opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning, particularly when their first language is not English. Cambridge IGCSE is accepted as equivalent to the GCSE and leads onto the Advanced Level (A-Levels) program.  

Why choose IGCSE?

  • The IGCSE qualification is accepted and valued by leading universities and employers worldwide. 

  • All classes are in English and prepare for future international studies.

  • Develop international study skills - a focus on critical thinking.

  • The IGCSE program is currently taught in more than 140 countries, with 4500 schools around the world.

The entry requirement

The IGCSE program will be taught in English with selected Vietnamese subjects, so students are required to have a good English level to study this program. Students are also required to have high overall scores at the end of grade 8 under the MoET program.

BCIS Pathways for students:
