When you choose your IGCSE/International GCSE or A-level subjects, you may also have a choice of exam board. Exam boards are organisations that offer qualifications to students, and it’s their job to produce exam papers, mark your work and award your grade. For school exams, we work with two main boards: Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and Pearson Edexcel.

So how do you choose between them? Both boards offer qualifications that are internationally recognised and accepted by colleges and universities around the world. 

To find out more about each board, use the following links: 

Please note that we cannot accept you as a candidate if:

  • you are sitting exams with the same exam board elsewhere during the same exam session
  • you are enrolled at a school that enters candidates for exams with the same exam board.
