As a truly international school, CGA runs two school calendars. The Aoraki calendar suits students in the southern hemisphere and runs for four terms, starting in February and ending in December. Our Greenwich calendar suits northern hemisphere students and runs for three terms starting in September and ending in May of the following year. Speak to an advisor to create a plan for you!

CGA has 2 calendars:
New classes start in February and Sept and each class lasts for roughly nine months, followed by an examination period. Examinations are usually held in June/July and October/November.
In New Zealand, examinations have to be sat in a physical property approved by Pearson Edexcel. Initially, this will be in Newmarket, Auckland. Additional examination centres will be approved throughout New Zealand.
Internationally, there are hundreds of approved examination centres. You can find an examination centre near you on Find a Pearson centre.
Pearson Edexcel examinations will be held in January, June and October for most International AS/A2 subjects, and January and June for most International GCSE subjects.
English Literature will be examined in January and June.
Yes. Please reach out to our Enrolment Team to create a plan that ensures the student is able to catch up on missed classes.
The standard duration for International GCSE and International AS-Level courses is 12 months each, and a further 12 months for International A-Level courses. It is possible, however, for highly motivated students to complete the qualification more quickly.
You can take as many subjects at different levels at any given time.
If needed, you can sit your examination at a later date. This is something that can be explored with your academic support team.
