Students may choose either Core and Extended Curriculum for English, Math and Science. The core curriculum is an overview of the subject and is suitable for students expected to achieve Grades C to G. The extended curriculum is like a specialization in that subject. It is more challenging and designed for students who are expected to achieve grades A* to C. Besides the five papers required for obtaining the IGCSE certificate, if students attempt and clear seven or more papers, they are awarded the International Certificate of Education (ICE), a group award of Cambridge IGCSE.
