Everything About IGCSE Homeschooling Courses

 

You can start our IGCSE homeschooling courses any time of the year

The IGCSE is the world’s most popular exam qualification for 14 to 16 year olds, and the Cambridge IGCSE is recognised by universities and employers everywhere.

Cambridge IGCSE exams are held in May/June and in October/November each year. The May/June sitting is the more widely available. A March exam is also available to students in India.

Your child’s choice of IGCSE subjects can have a major bearing on their future education and career.  For advice please see Choosing Your Child’s IGCSE Subjects.

Students usually take our IGCSE courses over one year (up to 4 subjects) or over two years (5 or more subjects). For more details see IGCSE Exam Information  and take a look at our latest Exam Results.

The Cambridge IGCSE

In the UK, children study 8 or more IGCSE subjects over two academic years.  They take a broad range including English Language and English Literature, Mathematics, one or more Sciences (single, double or triple), one or more humanities (Geography and/or History) and a language (French, Spanish and German being the most popular). Computer Science is also popular in the digital economy.

We suggest that your child starts with a minimum of four or five subjects, with English Language and Mathematics as the first choices. These four or five subjects may be taken over one year or longer as seems appropriate.

Your child’s choice of subjects should be determined by whether they are going on to A Level and from there to university. If your child plans to take any of the above subjects at A Level, then a good pass (A*, A or B) at IGCSE will be expected.

To give you an idea of how long your child will need, the approximate study time for each IGCSE subject is 150 hours (180 for English, Maths and the Sciences). To this you should add extra time for assignment preparation (8-12 assignments per subject).

MORE INFORMATION

  • Students aiming for top universities usually take 10-12 IGCSE courses.
  • Students who want to study a science subject at A Level, should study that subject as a single IGCSE course but IGCSE Co-ordinated Science (double award) may be accepted.
  • Students should allow time for Tutors to mark each assignment (3-5 working days).
  • Students may be interested in theCambridge ICE qualification. Click here to find out more about this.

ENGLISH AND LANGUAGES

  • IGCSE English Language (First or Second Language) – we recommend most students take the IGCSE English Language course, as this is seen as a better qualification for further studies and employers.
  • IGCSE English Literature – students must take IGCSE English Language (first language) to support this course.
  • Modern Foreign Language – students who wish to take French, German and Spanish courses should have studied that language for approximately 2 years prior to starting the IGCSE.

      Covid-19 Update 😷

      Covid-19: Tutorial Procedures

      Just recently the Covid-19 situation has become increasingly worse once again and obviously worrying for all of us. Schools are closed or likely to be closed and will be offering online learning to supplement and replace all classroom teaching, homework assignments, examination preparation and project work. We here at GK Consultants will continue to work with students on their learning, school assignments and try to support each of them in terms of organisation, time management and other guidance as needed. Intensive support for IGCSE, A Level, SAT, ACT, AP and IB examinations will continue as we approach crucial dates during these next few months. Homeschooling programmes will continue as before.

       

      GK Consultants will continue to operate as follows:

       

      • Students can have their tutorials delivered either in person or by an online learning interface such as Skype or Zoom. Remote methods of teaching and learning work well, and we have used online teaching and learning techniques for many years. Online tutorials are scheduled at the same time as their face-to-face counterparts or can be rescheduled if an alternative time is convenient for the student and the tutor.

       

      At GK Consultants we are always here to discuss all matters relating to your son’s or your daughter’s education. Just because we are dealing with a health crisis does not mean that education is interrupted – you child’s future is as important today as it ever was.

      We look forward to hearing from you if you have any questions and let us all hope that the situation improves soon and we will be able to look back on this current pandemic in terms such as, “Do you remember when……...”

      Best wishes to you all: I, my academic team and administrative team wish you and your family a happy, healthy, safe, and successful 2021.
