International GCSE

Volume 451: debated on Wednesday 8 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government whether her Department recognises the International GCSE as an acceptable substitute for a GCSE for the purposes of recruitment. (96731)

My Department recognises the International GCSE but it is accepted only from those countries which come under the civil service nationality rules. It is accepted from nationals of European Economic Area member states, members of the Commonwealth and Swiss nationals who have the right to work in the UK.
