International GCSE Exams

IGCSE

As part of EIPACA’s program to provide additional educational opportunities for students, we are able to offer secondary school students the possibility of taking the IGCSE examinations. These are international
qualifications offered by a recognized United Kingdom educational authority. The GCSE exams are compulsory in the UK at the end of S5 or Seconde.
In order to comply with the new UK Department of Education requirements, please note that from last year onwards, the Examination body EDEXCEL has put in place a new marking system.
Here is a link which allows you to be informed https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-international-gcsesand-edexcel-certificates/the-9-1-grading-scale-explained/9-1-grading-scale-explained.html
The document “Leading the way with Pearson Edexcel International GCSE-9-1” to be download from this page is particularly well documented.
These exams are optional and must be paid for by the individual student. The examinations are administered locally by our parents’ association IPM.
The exams usually take place in May/June of the school year, and on average, around 30 students per year choose to take one or more IGCSE exam.
Please note that for some subjects, the curriculum is slightly different to the ones at EIPACA and our teachers do not prepare students specifically for the IGCSE exams. Here is the link to the list of subjects
(https://qualifications.pearson.com/en/qualifications/edexcel-international-gcses-and-edexcelcertificates.html), please choose “2016” or “2017” version.

Dans le cadre de nos efforts pour enrichir l’offre éducative proposée aux élèves, l’Ecole EIPACA donne la possibilité à tous les élèves de présenter les examens du système éducatif britannique.
Afin de se conformer aux nouvelles exigences du Département de l’Education Anglais, veuillez noter que, depuis 2019, l’organisme de contrôle EDEXCEL a mis en place un nouveau système de
notation. Voici un lien qui vous permet d’être informé:
