IGCSE or International General Certificate of Secondary Education was developed by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and is a most popular board for students who have ambitions of studying abroad.
With Indian students looking for equal opportunities while applying for International Universities, many schools in India have transitioned to the IGCSE board. Parents and students have realized that the study methods for Checkpoint/IGCSE are not only more scientific, but also better acknowledged across Universities abroad.
The course structure and syllabus has been especially prepared for International Baccalaureate, A Level and BTEC Level3 courses and examinations. This is a new system, and the methods of study and examination processes are quite distinct from other Indian Boards.
The Checkpoint/IGCSE system shortens the traditionally extensive study material and text books used by other education boards in India with a much more comprehensive and scientifically structured syllabus. However, such a syllabus also uses a distinct study method, which most students aren’t used to.
Optimus Academy approaches coaching for IGCSE students as per the specific teaching and evaluation techniques approved by the University of Cambridge. Since the parameters on which CIE evaluates students are different than regular Indian boards, it is slightly difficult for students to cope with the shift from other boards to Checkpoint/IGCSE. At Optimus Academy, we guide our students specifically for their Checkpoint/IGCSE examinations.
We are among the only tutorial centers in Mumbai to provide exclusive coaching for IGCSE students in the exact process approved by the University of Cambridge. This includes small batches for better teacher – student interactions, regular smaller examinations to prepare each lesson in its full scope, and coaching that effectively utilizes the time from the 9th Grade all the way through the 10th Grade for the best results in IGCSE.
The IGCSE system is about regular evaluation at every step, and at Optimus Academy, we follow this method very closely. We provide students with the right kind of study materials for their subject, and approach each lesson in a way to be followed up by a mock test. This systematic evaluation is key to develop confidence during preparation, and a better aptitude before the final Checkpoint/IGCSE examinations.
Performance Focused At your doorstep!
