Cambridge O Level is an internationally recognised qualification equivalent to Cambridge IGCSE and UK GCSE. Cambridge O Level provides learners with excellent preparation for academic progression to Cambridge Advanced as well as other progression routes.
We designed Cambridge O Level for an international audience. It is sensitive to the needs of different countries and for learners whose first language may not be English. This is acknowledged during the assessment process.
In some countries, schools use Cambridge O Level as an international alternative or addition to the local government’s examination.
A broad curriculum
The Cambridge O Level curriculum enables teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant wherever you teach it. You can choose from more than 40 subjects in any combination.
The Cambridge O Level curriculum emphasises broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects. It develops learners’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving and is structured so they build practical skills and theoretical knowledge.
Cambridge O Levels develop learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:
Applying knowledge and understanding to familiar and new situations
Flexibility and responsiveness to change
Working and communicating in English
Cambridge O Level is compatible with other curricula. We update the curriculum regularly to ensure it stays relevant to learners’ needs.
