Cambridge International Examinations

University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) is the world's largest provider of international qualifications for students between the ages of 14 and 19. As part of Cambridge Assessment (which celebrates its 150th anniversary in 2008) and is a department of the University of Cambridge, CIE offers examinations and qualifications in more than 150 countries. Cambridge qualifications include international A-level, O-level, IGCSE and Cambridge International Diplomas. Examinations are open to private candidates in the UK or the USA, although schools may enter students if they are registered CIE centres.

CIE first developed the IGCSE 20 years ago for an international audience. Today, CIE offers more than 60 subjects for IGCSE, benchmarked to UK GCSE standard. It also offers more than 50 A-levels. For countries that choose to make use of O-level examinations, Cambridge provides a wide variety of subjects: for example, in addition to examinations in what might be regarded as core subjects, examinations are available in a number of first languages, additional mathematics, additional combined science and many other subjects. CIE qualifications are recognised for admission by UK universities, including Cambridge, as well as universities in the US, Canada, India, Pakistan, New Zealand and around the world.

CIE also offers 'N' (Normal) Levels, which are taken before O Level in Singapore.

CIE offers Cambridge Pre-U, an alternative to UK A Level.
