About this course

IGCSE Arabic online course

Cambridge IGCSE Arabic has been designed to help candidates develop language proficiency to level A2 (basic uUser) with some elements of proficiency at level B1 (independent user) of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages: Learning, Teaching, Assessment (CEFR).

Arabic is also one of the official languages of the United Nations. Similarly, other global agencies also recognise Arabic as an international language. For students wishing to study for any degree at Britain’s top universities, Arabic is classified as one of the most important list A subjects that students should do and pass at school in order to be admitted into a top British university. This is based on the recognition that Arabic is the key to understanding some of the world’s greatest civilisations and intellectual traditions. For example, the important texts written by the ancient Greeks in subjects such as medicine, philosophy, mathematics, rhetoric, physics, to mention only these few, were transmitted to the modern western world through the medium of Arabic translations and commentaries produced between the 8th and 10th centuries in Iraq. Mathematical terms such as algebra and algorithm come from Arabic. Similarly, the history and development of subjects such as medicine, engineering, astronomy, physics, and optics were strongly influenced by medieval scientists who wrote and disseminated their science in Arabic.

In the October of year 11, 12 and 13 parents and guardians will receive an email asking which exams the learner intends to take, and where they would like to take them. Parents and guardians must inform King’s InterHigh if they need assistance finding an exam centre by mid-October.

King’s InterHigh can support you in finding a local exam centre. It is then down to the individual to register with the centre of choice and pay the exam fees to the centre directly. As each exam centre sets their own fees we cannot provide accurate pricing, however as an example, you can see our own fees by clicking here
