Marshall Cavendish Education Cambridge IGCSE™ Physics, Chemistry and Biology Series

Marshall Cavendish Education Cambridge IGCSE™ Physics, Chemistry and Biology are comprehensive two-year programmes designed to support learners with their study of the Cambridge IGCSE and IGCSE (9-1) Physics (0625/0972), Chemistry (0620/0971) and Biology (0610/0970) syllabuses.

Developed based on robust research, these series bring Science learning to life by focusing on real-life examples to which learners can relate. They are designed to excite and engage learners to be curious about scientific concepts and to promote a deep understanding of topics. This is done by giving learners plenty of opportunities to practise learned skills, reflect on concepts and share, discuss or journal what they have learned. 

Each series consists of both print and digital learning resources that support blended learning. This provides learners with a more complete and flexible learning experience.

Recognising that there is a potentially diverse student population for whom English may not be the first language, these series use simple and clear language with plenty of visual representations and also feature a mix of global and Asian examples for the international audience.

They also cater to learners at various levels of learning readiness by providing additional support and enrichment resources. Overall, these series will provide learners with scientific skills and knowledge for success, and nurture them into confident critical thinkers who are ready for the future.




Reduce Learning Obstacles for the International Audience 

Developed based on robust research to cater to learners of different learning readiness, these series will guide and support learners to overcome learning obstacles and foster a deeper understanding of concepts. With its clear and simple language, these series are designed to promote better understanding among international learners for whom English may not be the first language. Featuring a mix of global and Asian examples, these series aim to provide both an international view and a sense of familiarity in the learning journey.


Equip Learners with Exam-Readiness and 21st Century Competencies

Designed to build learners’ confidence and exam-readiness, these series are accompanied by ample assessment opportunities to enhance and reinforce learning. Learners are guided to transfer and apply their scientific knowledge to various contexts which can hone their process and practical skills, as well as their problem-solving skills. Additional information and activities related to real-world contexts are present to promote engagement and encourage exploration. These series will help learners expand their knowledge, deepen their understanding and empower them with 21st century competencies essential for the future. 

Teaching Effectiveness

Enhance Teaching and Learning Effectiveness with Digital Resources

These series are developed with flexibility and convenience in mind to support both new and experienced educators in delivering quality and engaging lessons. The accompanying online digital resources can be used to facilitate real-time learning through online lessons. Learners can enhance their comprehension at their own pace by revisiting the resources on their own.
