Cambridge International Examinations was formally established in 1998 to provide high-quality, leading-edge qualifications that meet the ongoing demands of employers and educators across the world.
They offer a broad range of internationally recognised qualifications, both academic and vocational, which have been designed to develop successful students worldwide. They include general qualifications including Cambridge IGCSE, Cambridge International A Level, Cambridge O Level and Cambridge Pre-U (a new post-16 qualification), plus a range of vocational Cambridge International Diplomas.
For nearly 150 years the exam board has worked in partnership with ministries of education, qualifications authorities and examination and assessment boards around the world. In some countries such as Singapore Cambridge examinations are the state qualification for students in secondary school. Tens of thousands of students take Cambridge O Levels every year.
In other parts of the world such as Botswana, Namibia and Swaziland, the board has worked with governments to reform education systems, and helped to localise examinations by training officials, teachers, markers and examiners in curriculum development and assessment.
Cambridge International Examinations operates in 160 countries around the world including the UK and Europe, South Asia, the Middle East, Asia Pacific, North America, Central and South America and Africa.
The board employs 170 staff in the UK and has regional representatives around the world and we work with around 7,000 examiners.
