What is the Difference Between the National Curriculum & the IGCSE?

The International General Certificate of Education is a robust curriculum delivered to children around the world. The Cambridge course is similar in nature to the British GCSE, offered to all children enrolled in secondary education in the UK; however, studying the IGCSE curriculum results in a qualification that is easily transferable to other schools worldwide, and it is often seen as a more rigorous option of study.

The Department of Italian Education accredits the National High School Diploma as a high-quality programme provided to children attending schools in the country. It is an excellent option for students who wish to continue their studies in Italy or elsewhere in Europe. The IGCSE and the National Curriculum offer participants a range of subjects to choose from in addition to compulsory core courses.
