The IGCSE is the world’s most popular exam qualification for 14 to 16 year olds, and the Cambridge IGCSE is recognized by universities and employers everywhere. Your child’s choice of IGCSE subjects can have a major bearing on their future education and career. Most children take six to nine IGCSE subjects over two academic years to gain a broader education before progressing on to A levels
All core International GCSE subjects follow the exam board Edexcel. The programme for each subject is both engaging and promotes independent learning
GCSEs are followed by thousands of schools in the UK and internationally and are recognised around the world.

A levels are recognized by employers and universities alike as the “gold standard” of British Secondary education. Good A-level passes will secure entry to the best UK and US universities and to universities worldwide. We offer a wide range of AS and A level homeschooling courses

AS level is a stand-alone qualification in all subjects in its own right, as well as being the first half of an A level. Depending on the entry requirements of the university to which you apply, an AS can add breadth to your A level qualifications

Note that you need to take the A level exam within 13 months of the AS exam for the qualification to remain valid. If you defer your A level exams beyond this period, you will be required to take the AS exams again

To be accepted onto our A level homeschooling courses, students must have a Grade C or 4 in both English and Math and these will be expected as part of most university applications

Cambridge AS and A level exams are held in May/June and in October/November each year both in the UK and internationally. The May/June sitting is the most widely available. There is also a March sitting in some subjects for students in India

All of our A level courses include a number of past exam papers in the final module

Most students take three A level subjects over two academic years in order to apply for university. Strong academic candidates might consider taking an additional AS qualification or a fourth A level to boost their application for competitive courses. A level can however be studied simply for pleasure. See BTEC options where applicable

Where they are applying for university, students should choose subjects that are either required or recommended for their desired university degree course

Edexcel International AS and A level exams are available in January, May/June and October every year. Offered by KNEC(Kenya National Examinations Council)
