The International General Certificate of Secondary Education exams are Grade X level exams conducted by many International Schools. The IGCSE consists of five groups of subjects and students take up a minimum of five subjects to qualify for the exam. Students can also take up seven subjects, for which they are awarded an additional International Certificate of Education (ICE) qualification.

SUBJECT GROUPS

Group 1: English language, Hindi
Group 2: Economics, Geography, History, English literature.
Group 3: Physics, Chemistry, Biology
Group 4: Math, additional math
Group 5: Business studies, Information technology

Depending on the school and subjects they choose, students have the option of adding additional subjects to their combination. Hence, a student who wishes to pursue engineering can opt for a combination of English language, Hindi, Economics, Math, Physics, Chemistry and Business studies.

The Association of Indian Universities states that clearing five subjects (including English) at grades C or above in the IGCSE board is equivalent to a class X qualification hence making it possible for a student to migrate to the Indian board system. However, students who wish to study science must opt for math and science including physics, chemistry and/or biology.

With a plethora of options to choose from, students are now spoiled for choice. It is imperative, however, that students choose subjects keeping in mind their career choice. If a student is uncertain about a career but knows that engineering is something he/she will never do, then it is fine to do science subjects so long as math is retained. Finally, if a student is certain of career based in arts, dropping math and science both is a viable option.
