Cambridge ICE is a group award for Cambridge IGCSE that recognizes the achievements of learners who choose a broad and balanced curriculum and pass examinations in at least seven Cambridge IGCSE subjects from five different subject groups, including two different languages.
The Cambridge IGCSE subjects are grouped into five curriculum areas:
- Group I: Languages
- Group II: Humanities and Social Sciences
- Group III: Sciences
- Group IV: Mathematics
