Key Stage 4

In Year 10 students commence the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), a two year program culminating with assessments at the end of Year 11.

All students have core subjects to study, including English, Maths and Science. Option subjects include:

  • Psychology
  • Accounting
  • Economics
  • Business
  • Drama
  • Travel & Tourism

Students are awarded an internationally recognized qualification, equivalent in standard to the British GCSE.

IGCSE is used by schools in over 90 countries throughout the world and has been recognized as a qualification for matriculation purposes by Universities world-wide.

Examination leads to the award of one of eight grades (A*, A, B, C, D, E, F and G) in each subject, the highest grade is A*.  All grades down to grade G are passes, however, the aim is for all students to achieve a C grade or higher in all entries, since these higher passes contribute to accessing Advanced level programs at 16, and undergraduate courses later on.

In some subjects, candidates take examinations at one of two levels, Core or Extended, with the second level designed for higher ability candidates.

International School students normally enter between 9 and 13 subjects at IGCSE.

 

Sixth Form

In Year 12 students must meet ISS entry requirements to commence their A Level Studies.

Students are awarded an internationally recognized qualification, equivalent in standard to the British A Levels.

Examination leads to the award of one of five grades (A*, A, B, C, D, E) in each subject, the highest grade is A*.  All grades down to grade E are passes, however, the aim is for all students to achieve a C grade or higher in all entries, since these higher passes contribute to accessing undergraduate courses.
