GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) is the exam that replaced O-levels and CSEs in Britain in 1988, so the top grades at GCSE are broadly equivalent to O-levels. GCE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) A-levels are the next set of exams that you can do after GCSEs or O-levels.

The SPM is a Malaysian exam that is equivalent to O-level.

TO Mafer: GCSEs have replaced O-levels and CSEs in Britain - they are near enough the same thing

'GCE A-levels' are the next step if you want to take more exams. This is the same as 'GCE' or 'A-levels'
