IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education)

Our 16 year old (Year 11) students sit the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), or IGCSE exams. These are the most popular and prestigious exams for this age group offered in international schools throughout the World. We are very proud that for many years IGCSE results at the ABCIS in the majority of subject areas have been far above UK and international school performance averages and are among the highest of any international school in the world. Consequently we now measure our performance against the best international schools in the world.

We carefully analyse the performance of each student several times a year and intervene to set individual targets on a regular basis. To allow us to do this we use internal examination data alongside external examination results and international examination grades. Analysis shows students meet or exceed targets and expectations over the long term and there is exceptional progress for many individuals and in many subject areas.
