GCSE and IGCSE


Study online GCSE courses that can help you address gaps in your school education.

If you're looking for a super-flexible, affordable way to get the GCSEs you need, you're in luck.

Our mission is to make learning accessible for everyone, so we make it easy to shape your study around your schedule: set your own timetable, study wherever suits you, and get help when you need it from our expert tutors.

You can get started on your course right away with a small deposit, then pay the remaining fees monthly with our flexible and interest-free payment plans.

All of our GCSEs and IGCSEs are accredited by either the AQA, the UK's largest awarding body for school and college qualifications, or the internationally respected awarding body Edexcel, meaning you’ll get the same high quality education online with us as you would in a traditional classroom.

IGCSEs are International GCSEs – they’re equivalent to regular GCSEs and are offered in many independent and private schools in the UK. We teach them because they’re assessed mainly through exams, not coursework, so they’re more suited to online learning.

You don’t need any previous qualifications to enrol on our GCSE/IGCSE courses, so whether you’re looking to address gaps in your school education or prepare for college or university, we’re here to help you achieve your goals. Trust us – we’ve been doing this for over 127 years.


Studying With Us

Once you’ve enrolled, you can begin whenever suits you. There are no set deadlines or set hours per week. You’ll receive instant access to your course materials through our Student Community, along with study advice to help you get started. 

Our extensive support system means there will always be a real person available to help you. 

You'll be assigned a dedicated personal tutor who will be with you from the beginning to the end of your course. They'll answer questions about coursework, assessments and exams, and help you work through any academic problem you’re stuck with.

They’ll also give you test papers and mock exams to ensure you’re ready to pass your assessments. All your papers will be marked and given constructive feedback so you know exactly what your strengths are and what you can improve.

Our student support team will be on hand to give you all the admin information you need.

Plus, you'll be able to chat to your fellow A Level students through the Student Community to ask questions and share advice.

ICS Learn proved to be excellent value for money

I chose to do my GCSE Mathematics with ICS as they were competitively priced and offered a wide range of GCSEs and A Levels. I found my maths improved over the year and the knowledge I gained enabled me to move on to my chosen university course. ICS Learn proved to be excellent value for money and were very supportive in helping me get ready to embark upon my chosen career.
