In Key Stage 4 students prepare to take examinations for the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education). Students in this key stage in Great Britain are usually between 14 and 16 years old. Students who transfer to The International Preparatory School without the adequate preparation to do IGCSEs will be prepared for these examinations before proceeding on to higher level examinations such as AS (Advanced Subsidiary level) or A-levels (Advanced levels).

What are IGCSEs?

Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and is an international passport to progression and success. Developed over 25 years ago, it is tried, tested and trusted by schools worldwide. Students are assessed at the end of a two year course (taken in Y10 and Y11) in a variety of different skills. Language courses contain speaking components, and science courses assess laboratory skills in addition to subject knowledge.
