Cambridge IGCSE is the world's most popular international curriculum for students aged 14 to 16 years. It is recognised by leading universities, further education institutions and employers around the world as evidence of academic achievement.
Cambridge Global Perspectives is an interdisciplinary programme that helps students at every stage of school education develop a strong set of transferable skills through the study of global issues. We developed the programme in response to concerns from universities over the ‘college-readiness’ of students. As such, Cambridge Global Perspectives equips students with a firm grasp of core research, collaboration, presentation and higher-order thinking skills – skills students need to be successful at school, university and in their future careers.

We release exam results worldwide in January (following the November exam series) and August (June exam series). In India, we hold an extra exam series in March and release results in May. We offer a range of services to universities to help you verify candidates’ exam results quickly.
Results verification service
Universities and other academic organisations can apply for free access to our secure website, CIE Direct, to view and verify students’ results online. Alternatively, universities can ask individual students to apply to us for verification of their certificates.
Find out how to apply for these services on the verification of students’ results page.
We send certificates to schools up to eight weeks after provisional results are released. This is to allow time for us to resolve any enquiries about results. The certificates confirm the candidates’ results as final.
We can send a candidate’s provisional results directly to a particular institution on the day they are a released. Candidates need to apply to us for this priority results service by completing the ‘Results and certificates – form 9’. It is available in Phase 6 – Results and certificates
