Thank you for your feedback.
how much is the exam fee? How long does the course take?
You will need to get in touch with the exam centre directly in order to find out pricing and to register your place for the exam. The great thing about CloudLearn is that you dictate, how long it takes to complete. The full IGCSE is 120 hours of study, so at 40 hours per week – that would be 3 weeks, 20 hours a week = 6 weeks, 10 hours per week = 4 months. It’s totally down to you and your commitment to study. IGCSEs like GCSEs are only examined twice a year (January and May/June).This was helpful. Thank you for your feedback.
