Please find attached a document published by the Department for Education which sets out the qualifications which will count towards the performance tables in 2016. You can also find this document on the Department for Education website.
The first line on page 3 of this document shows that ‘established IGCSEs’ will count towards the 2016 league tables in the same way that GCSEs will count towards the 2016 league tables. The definition of ‘established IGCSEs’ is “accredited versions of qualifications which were being offered as ‘IGCSE’ and were being taken in independent and/or international schools before it was announced in June 2010 that accredited IGCSEs could be used in maintained schools.” Cambridge International Level 1 / Level 2 Certificates are accredited IGCSEs which fit the definition of ‘established IGCSEs’ and therefore will count towards the 2016 performance tables.
