Cambridge International Examinations is the world’s largest provider of international education programmes and qualifications for 5 to 19 year olds.
A division of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge and a not-for-profit organisation. We invest constantly in research and development to improve our programmes and qualifications.
Cambridge International Examinations is recognised by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (Ofqual) – the regulator of examinations in England – to award qualifications. This means you can be sure our assessments and qualifications are monitored and meet appropriate standards. We work closely with Ofqual to maintain our recognised status.
We are accredited as an awarding body by Ofqual (Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation) the UK government's regulator for awarding organisations and qualifications in England. This accreditation demonstrates that Ofqual has confidence in our approach to providing assessments and qualifications that are fit for purpose. Some of our qualifications that are taken widely in UK state schools have further Ofqual accreditation.
We develop our qualifications according to our Code of Practice and the Cambridge Approach. The Cambridge Approach sets out the principles forming the key reference points for the design, administration and evaluation of our assessments. It is intended to reflect the best practice in assessment that we seek to follow as an organisation and to be a practical guide for those involved in the development of new assessments.
It demonstrates international best practice and enables us to lead the assessment debate through the progressive use of the concept of validity. It provides an overarching structure for individual qualifications but is not designed to relate to every aspect. The Cambridge Approach covers the full life cycle of an assessment and will be regularly updated with the latest developments.
We regularly review and update Cambridge programmes and qualifications to make sure they reflect the latest developments in teaching and learning and meet schools’ needs around the world.
