In particular, Cambridge IGCSEs have seen significant growth with a 7% rise in entries compared to June 2015. The most popular Cambridge IGCSEs are: English as a second language and Physics, which have risen by 13%, accounting for over 12,562 entries.

Globally there has been 10% growth across all Cambridge qualifications this year, including 8% growth in entries for Cambridge IGCSEs.

Waseem Al Hanbali, Regional Director for Middle East and North Africa, Cambridge International Examinations, said: “I’d like to congratulate our students in Egypt for the hard work that went into their exams this year. We are extremely fortunate to have worked with schools in Egypt for over 25 years. We now work with over 110 schools and I’m pleased to say that the popularity for our international qualifications continues to grow with the overall growth of the education sector in this country.

“Today’s great results are based on the hard work of students, teachers and school support staff, together with the essential support and encouragement of families.  There is so much collective effort that goes into the results of an individual; it is schools, parents and teachers who also contribute to a student’s grade. I want to say well done to everyone and wish you every success as you move on to the next stage of studies and career pathways.”
