The IGCSE Examination is taken as a qualification towards International Certificate of Education (ICE). The ICE is awarded to the candidate who clears at least seven IGCSE subjects.

  • Two subjects from the language group.
  • One from each of the other four groups.
  • One more from any of the five groups.
Students who qualify for the Cambridge ICE award will be placed in one of three categories:

  • Distinction –– Grade A or better in five subjects and grade C or better in two subjects.
  • Merit– Grade C or better in five subjects and grade F or better in two subjects.
  • Pass– Grade G or better in seven subjects.

An important benefit that Cambridge ICE offers is that students can demonstrate competence across a wide range of subjects and skills. Cambridge ICE carries greater currency in its own right in those countries where it is popular.
