What is International GCSE?

The International A Levels are the most commonly studied curriculum around the world. They are based on the UK high school education system and are adapted for a global student base.

Students usually begin in Year 10 or 11 by sitting a minimum of 4-5 subjects. These subjects are structured as first introductions to the specific topic areas that they cover. In certain countries, students begin in Year 10 and sit 8-10 subjects over the course of two years.
