Later, GCE O Level has been changed to GCSE but for educational system outside the UK, the test will be called IGCSE (also in Thailand). However, there are many countries where GCE O Level is still applied. Such as Singapore Malaysia Pakistan Hongkong and Brunei. In fact, GCSE and O Level are similar and in the same level.

However, the test system has been changed since 2016. Before students who pass IGCSE will receive high school certificate and can use the certificate for their further study but now students will need to take A-Level test after IGCSE in order to be able to receive high school certificate.
