What is Cambridge IGCSE? The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is one of the most recognised qualifications around the world. IGCSE courses are renowned for developing vital educational skills, including recall of knowledge, oral skills, problem solving, initiative, team work and investigative skills. The resulting qualification provides a foundation for higher level courses, such as A and AS Levels, the Advanced International Certificate of Education, the North American Advanced Placement programme and the International Baccalaureate. Cambridge IGCSE caters for different levels of ability with a choice between core and extended papers in many subjects. The core curriculum is based on an overview of the subject and is suitable for students expected to achieve grades C to G. The extended curriculum is more challenging and designed for students who are expected to achieve grades A* to C. Grades achieved through either route have the same value. Cambridge IGCSE offers a flexible course of study that gives candidates the freedom to choose subjects that are right for them, whilst providing them with abroad knowledge base and lifelong skills.

Who can take IGCSE? Cambridge IGCSE is designed to be taught as a two year course for students aged 14 to 16 years. In some countries IGCSE courses last just one year and there are no formal age regulations. In most subjects there is a choice between core and extended curricula, making IGCSE suitable for a wide range of abilities. Students can enter for the level that is most appropriate for them and this need not be the same across all subjects.

Examination Information IGCSE courses take two years to complete and exams are taken at the end of that period. Examinations are held in June and November each year with results issued in August and February respectively. Students must enter for Cambridge IGCSE through a registered CIE Centre.

Subjects on offer Please turn to KEY to IGCSE SYLLABUSES on page 4 – 7.

Why do some component codes in the entries booklet and timetable not match the component numbers in the syllabus? CIE operates a system of entry codes based on location. In practice, this means that the component number given in the syllabus will not always match up with the component code on the timetable or in the entry instruction booklet. When the component code has two digits, the first digit is the component number given in the syllabus, and the second number is the location code, specific to your administrative zone.

Where can students get a copy of the examination timetable? Please turn to page 8 – 11 for the IGCSE October/November 2013 examinations timetable.

Timetable clash It is your responsibility to check the examinations timetable to ensure that your subjects do not clash, and to ensure that the subjects applied for are all available. Please note that no arrangements can be made for rescheduling examinations that clash.

What documents are required for registration? Documents required for registration include two passport-sized photographs (2 inches) and a copy of your identity card or passport. Only completed entry form that accompanied by the documents required and registration fees is accepted.

How to register? You are requested to fill in the registration form provided by Customer Services at the British Council Siam Square office. Names given on the registration form must be official names, which are identical to those on your ID card. The specifics of the examination(s) which you outline on that form (i.e. session, level, subject code, and subject titles) must be completed. Please submit the completed entry form IN PERSON to Customer Services between Monday and Friday, from 1000 to 1800 hrs, the completed entry form must be accompanied by the documents required and registration fees. Upon registration, you will be required to pay the full registration fee. Please note that there are two ways to make a payment: cash, and credit card (VISA and Master card accepted.)

Instructions on IGCSE Examination Timetable NOV 2013 CIE is introducing two new concepts for November 2012 examinations onwards: Key Times and Administrative Zones. These changes are part of a project to increase the security of CIE examinations, and ensure that the validity and integrity of CIE examinations continue to be valued as a global standard. CIE will identify a Key Time in each morning and afternoon examination session when all candidates must be under full supervision by their Centre. Centres will still be free to choose the start and finish times for their examinations within the periods defined on the timetable, but all candidates must be under full Centre supervision at the Key Time.

1. About the sessions and the KEY TIME Examinations must be taken in the morning or afternoon timetable session as shown on the FINAL timetable. All candidates entered for examinations in a session must be under Full Centre Supervision at the KEY TIME. If examinations timetable outside of the KEY TIME they must be kept under Full Centre Supervision until the KEY TIME. The KEY TIME will be expressed in RED. The KEY TIME for the morning session is 12:00 p.m. The KEY TIME for the afternoon session is 16:00 p.m.

2. What does “under Full Centre Supervision” mean? Candidates can be in the examination room, doing their examination, under the supervision of invigilators. If the examinations finish before the KEY TIME, they must be supervised by invigilators until the KEY TIME. During that time candidates can have access to their books and notes, and they can talk to each other. However, they must not have any access to telephones, mobile phones, the Internet, or any means of external communication; and they must not be allowed any communication with anyone not under Full Centre Supervision. Failure by a centre to comply with the Regulations regarding the KEY TIME will be considered Maladministration by CIE and may result in CIE being unable to accept candidates’ work.

3. Where there is more than one paper in a single session In the case where a candidate has to sit two papers in one session (not timetable clash), the second question paper must given out until the time allocated to the first question paper has been allowed and the scripts for the first paper have been collected. This rule applies unless the rubric of either of the question papers gives a different instruction.

4. Time Allowance for Question Papers Any time specially allocated for candidates to read through question papers and to study maps, etc., is already included in the total time allowance shown in the timetable. No additional time is allowed.

5. Timetable Clashes It is a candidate’s responsibility to check the examinations timetable to ensure that your subjects do not clash, and to ensure that the subjects applied for are all available. Please note that no arrangements can be made for rescheduling examinations that clash.
