Some universities now require evidence of an English Language speaking and listening assessment as part of their entry requirements, particularly for those applying to study medicine. Cambridge IGCSE remains a valued First Language English qualification for entry to Higher Education. Any change in entry requirements has related purely to evidence of speaking and listening skills. For students sitting Cambridge IGCSE First Language English (0500) from 2016 we would strongly advise that they take the Speaking and Listening component. Schools have been informed of this development and we trust that they will respond accordingly.
For further information about entry requirements for a particular university or course, please check the university’s website or contact them directly.
