Cambridge Advanced Programme

Cambridge International AS and A Levels are internationally benchmarked qualifications that help prepare candidates for university education. They are part of the Cambridge Advanced stage.

Cambridge International AS and A Level qualifications are recognised and valued by universities and employers worldwide. Some US universities give up to a year’s credit as a result. Every year, thousands of Cambridge International A Level students are placed in some of the best universities all over the world – the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia.

Students are freedom to choose subjects that are best suited to them – they either follow a broad course of study, or specialize in a particular domain.

Cambridge International AS Levels have half the content of the corresponding Cambridge International A Level which may be completed in one year. Students have the option to study Cambridge International AS Level with other subjects to increase breadth in the curriculum and build deeper knowledge and understanding of the subjects that are part of the Cambridge International A Level.

The examination for AS and A Level are conducted twice a year; in June and November, with results declared in August and January respectively.

A range of assessment processes and techniques that supplement formal written examinations – orals, practicals, projects and coursework of differing types are used in various subjects according to where they are the most effective.

Use of the Interactive Media:

Our faculty use new technology for teaching.  Interactive boards and multimedia are some popular teaching aids. This gives students a concrete understanding of topics with the help of visual aid in the form of photographs or videos of the unit of study. Students also make use of computers, tablets and the internet for research for assignments.

Class Projects:

Projects on each topic of study are given to students to enable “Learn by Doing”. Projects are planned for individuals and groups of three to five students.

Field Trips:

Field trips are organized for students to learn from visit to educational centers, gardens, museums or study sites. These make memorable learning experiences.

Assessments:

Periodic assessments are conducted and students are graded based on their performances. School follows a system of continuous evaluation and regularly provides parents with an assessment of their child’s academic progress, based on a comprehensive system of reviews, reports and parent teacher meetings.
