Cambridge Checkpoint

At the end of Lower Secondary, pupils appear for the Cambridge Checkpoint tests, providing detailed diagnostic information on students’ strengths and weaknesses before they move into the Cambridge IGCSE.

International General Certificate of Secondary Examination (IGCSE)

At the end of Cambridge Upper Secondary, learners gain Cambridge IGCSE qualifications. IGCSE is globally recognised by universities and employers worldwide as equivalent to the UK General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) taken at Grade 10. Assessment takes place at the end of the course.
