When do classes start?
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.
Where are external exams sat?
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.
When are the examinations?
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.
Can I start from any time?
Yes. Please reach out to our Enrolment Team to create a plan that ensures the student is able to catch up on missed classes.
How long do the qualifications take? Can I take them faster?
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.
