UK IGCSE- Edexcel
We are an official Edexcel Academic Centre meaning we offer a variety of UK International GCSE subjects for both learning and examination. ITS offers flexible learning periods to prepare students for the exam sessions held in January and June each year.
The UK International GCSEs are internationally recognized, publicly-examined secondary school (High School) qualifications and provide a recognised pathway to a variety of post-secondary options, both academic and vocational.
ITS offers all core UK IGCSE subjects and was the first non-mainstream school in Hong Kong to be licensed as a full provider of these qualifications (Edexcel Academic Centre #92885). This means we can allow anybody to access these qualifications, including those subjects with a coursework component such as English, without them having to be enrolled in full-time education. Edexcel is the largest of the UK's official examination awarding bodies.
You can take these courses either at our schools in Hong Kong or online.
Please call or email to ask for an information package to be mailed to you or to make an appointment to discuss options with Sue Smith, Director of Exam Services.
For students choosing the full-time Edexcel options, our learning programme provides greater flexibility in your study both in the way your week is organized and in the overall time you take to complete your qualification. Alternatively, you may choose to add specific IGCSEs to your current schooling through a part-time study option.
Experienced and highly qualified tutors and teachers will both teach and guide you through the course, support your learning and use a range of quality learning materials to help you prepare for the exams.
Tuition and enrolment in the following IGCSE subjects is available:
The classes at ITS are small – the maximum is eight students, so teachers/tutors are able to get to know each student individually and devote plenty of time to each class member. Using past papers as well as a range of educational resources, our experienced teachers/tutors are able to use their knowledge of their subject area to make your learning interesting and enjoyable and above all, effective.
Gaining good IGCSE grades provides a solid and proven platform from which to build, often acting as a springboard to the next level of learning such as A-levels, IB Diploma, BTEC level 3 and entrance in to top UK boarding schools.
Pre-requisites No previous study is required to access any of our IGCSE courses but they do require basic literacy and numeracy skills.
If you are concerned about whether you have the right academic background for the IGCSE study programme, make an appointment with one of our counsellors who will be able to help you decide on a course of study that is suitable for you.
