IGCSE @home

The best of both worlds – study from home and achieve the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds.   
 
Login to Academic Camp from the comfort of your own home and study up to five Cambridge IGCSEs in just one year instead of two years or just choose one or two subjects, such as English and Maths, alongside your normal school work. IGCSE is ideal preparation and an entry level qualification to A Levels or the IB Diploma. Leading universities and employers worldwide accept Cambridge IGCSE as evidence of academic ability so by even studying one subject you can stand out and show your commitment to your studies.
