Preparatory Course for Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)Awarded by: Singapore Examination and Assessment Board

Programme Objectives 

MDIS College is recognised as a registered school of Cambridge Assessment International Education, the only exam board wholly owned by a world-leading university, the University of Cambridge.

Cambridge IGCSE is one of the world’s most popular international qualifications for students. It is recognised as a reliable record of attainment for entry into universities and colleges worldwide, and is an international academic passport to progression and success.

Cambridge IGCSE is comparable to the Singapore-Cambridge GCE O-Level system and the United Kingdom’s General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE). Cambridge IGCSE examinations are held twice a year (May/June and Oct/Nov) and candidates are to register with MDIS College before the closing dates.
