CAMBRIDGE ADVANCED (16 – 19 YEARS)

Cambridge International AS and A Levels are internationally benchmarked qualifications providing excellent preparation for university education. They are part of the Cambridge Advanced stage.

Cambridge International AS and A Level qualifications are widely recognised and valued by universities and employers alike. Some US universities give up to a year’s credit as a result. Every year, thousands of Cambridge International A Level students gain places at good universities worldwide – including the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Cambridge International AS and A Levels are very flexible. Students have the freedom to select the subjects that are right for them – they either follow a broad course of study, or specialise in a particular area.

Cambridge International AS Levels have half the content of the corresponding Cambridge International A Level and may be completed in one year. Students can study Cambridge International AS Level alongside other subjects to increase breadth in the curriculum and build further knowledge and understanding to other subjects they are studying at Cambridge International A Level.

Cambridge International AS and A Level syllabus have been created specifically for an international audience. Cambridge International AS and A Level examination sessions occur twice a year, in June and November, with results issued in August and January respectively.

Cambridge International AS and A Levels use a wide range of assessment process and techniques to supplement formal written examinations – orals, practicals, projects and coursework of differing types are all used in various subjects where they are the most effective and appropriate means of measuring attainment.

Use of the Interactive Board, Internet (multi-media):

Teachers adopt new technology in teaching using Interactive board and multimedia. This method of teaching enables the students to have a concrete understanding of the topic as they are able to see actual photographs or view the videos of the specific unit for study. Students have access to the computer, tablets and the internet facility to complete their assignments.

Class Projects:

Simple project assignments are given to the students after a particular topic has been taught. This enables the students to “Learn by Doing”. This project is planned for individual students or for groups of three to five students.

Field Trips:

Field trips are organized for the students to visit places, gardens, museums or study sites on the school campus to make learning an unforgettable experience.

Assessments:

Periodic assessments are conducted and students are graded based on their performances. The school follows a system of continuous evaluation and regularly provides parents with an assessment of their child’s academic progress, based on a comprehensive system of reviews, reports and parent-teacher meetings.
