The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an academically rigorous, internationally used, specialised, English-language curriculum, which aims to prepare students for the IB Diploma or GCE A-Levels. It is the most popular international curriculum used in Hong Kong, and worldwide, for students aged 14 to 16, enabling pupils to continue their studies at home or at schools and colleges around the globe. Brighten’s tutors have years of experience with subjects devised by the most popular exam boards (Cambridge and Edexcel), and offer support for a wide range of subjects within this very flexible curriculum.
Aside from providing the more traditional subject support, coursework guidance, exam strategy and past paper drilling, Brighten tutors also aim to help foster the skills that the IGCSE curriculum aims to develop. These learner characteristics include the knowledge of specific subject content, the ability to apply knowledge and understand new or unfamiliar situations, a talent for intellectual enquiry, a conceptual flexibility and responsiveness to change, the ability to work and communicate in English, the chance to influence outcomes and a burgeoning cultural awareness.
At Brighten, we are not interested in creating students who can just pass exams. Instead we aim to develop the critical thinking skills and intellectual strategies that are essential for students progressing to the next stage of their education. We offers professional tuition in the following IGCSE subjects at both Core and Higher Level:
Other subjects could potentially be offered upon request. Please make enquiries with our centre.
