What are Cambridge O Levels?

The Cambridge General Certificate of Education Ordinary Level (Cambridge O Level) is one of the most recognised qualifications around the world. Cambridge O Level courses are renowned for developing vital educational skills, including the recall of knowledge, problem solving, decision making, evaluation and investigative skills. The resulting qualification provides a foundation for higher level courses, such as Cambridge International A and AS Levels, the Cambridge Advanced International Certificate of Education, the North American Advanced Placement programme and the International Baccalaureate.

Cambridge has offered Cambridge O Levels in many different countries for about 50 years. During that time, the Cambridge O Level has continually evolved to ensure that syllabuses are kept up to date and reflect good educational practice. They offer a flexible course of study that gives candidates the freedom to choose subjects that are right for them, whilst providing them with a broad knowledge base and lifelong skills.
