Cambridge Upper Secondary in WBS is typically for learners aged 14 to 16 years. Our Year 11 Students are registered for the IGCSE Examinations conducted by CAIE, University of Cambridge, UK.
The IGCSE course requires Students to take between eight to ten subjects. English (First /Second Language), English Literature, Foreign Language French, Mathematics, ICT and at least one Science subject are compulsory for all IGCSE Students in WB. Students may select between eight to ten subjects depending on their ability, interest, and career aspirations. The required learning hours per Cambridge IGCSE subject is 170 hours. This means that learners are expected to spend four hours per week on each subject.
Assessments take place at the end of the two-year course which includes written and oral tests, coursework, and practical assessments. Each learner’s performance is benchmarked using internationally recognised Grades, A* to G. Cambridge IGCSE caters for different levels of ability with a choice between core and extended papers in many subjects.
With the solid foundations provided in the Early Years and sustained at subsequent levels throughout the School, there is no doubt that Students at WB are on track to perform very well in their IGCSE.
