2- Or the International GCSE in Mathematics Higher tier (what us this page is about)
The IGCSE higher in mathematics course covers the subjects taught in the IGCSE mathematics foundation course in addition to some other advanced topics in mathematics such as trigonometric, differentiation, vectors, cubic graphs, therefore, the exam of mathematics higher contains within it topics of both the foundation and higher thus studying IGCSE mathematics higher does not require sitting for the exam of the IGCSE mathematics foundation at all but the student can go straight and sit for the IGCSE mathematics higher. Before the student enroll in this course, she/he has to make a choice between studying either of the mathematics foundation or higher tier based on which degree they wish to study in the university in the future.
One of the primary reasons that motivate students to study mathematics higher IGCSE is to pave their way to universities and increase their chances in getting accepted in various university majors that rely on mathematics such as any branch of engineering, science, computer science, economy or medicine.
Studying Pearson-Edexcel IGCSE curriculum in mathematics higher is an appropriate course for teaching delivery through distance learning and for sitting for the formal examinations. Once you have completed your course, you will have prepared yourself by then to attend the external formal examinations in either of the British Council or one of the Pearson-Edexcel approved examination centers in your country of residence.

1-If you pass this course and another four courses from other IGCSE subjects you will be able to apply for many British universities for foundational year. The other option is to progress to the International A-level education.
2-Learning mathematics is a life-time skill you can gain and benefit from in day to day life transactions.
