Welcome to the IGCSE Additional Maths learning portal. We recommend the following method in order to learn effectively and achieve excellent results in your exams.

** Some information on the IGCSE exams

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an internationally recognised qualification for school students typically in the ages 14-17.It is similar to GCSE in England , Wales, Ireland and Scotland. It was developed by University of Cambridge International Exams in 1988.The term ‘IGCSE ‘ is the registered trademark of the University of Cambridge. The IGCSE is an international alternative to many popular national curriculum. It is a qualification based on individual subjects of study. It is predominantly exam based. It is a viable option for many home schooling educators. Its academic worth is comparable to many secondary schools worldwide eg England’s GCSE, American GED or high school diploma, Hong Kong’s HKCEE and Singapore’s O level. It prepares students for further academic study including progression to As and A level study, Pre University and IB Diploma Programme and other equivalents. It is highly recognised around the world by academic institutions and employers. In 2010, it was estimated that these exams were taken by students in over 120 countries worldwide.

We have deemed this IGCSE additional maths subject important and able to provide an excellent foundation to prepare students to take on further pre u maths courses. Hence this is our first offering online to be followed closely by higher level maths subjects.
