Key Stage 4 students study for their IGCSE exams, which they sit at the end of Year 11. The IGCSE is an international version of the compulsory school examinations in England and Wales but is more suited to students in international schools as it allows us to use case studies and texts which are more appropriate to this region. The IGCSE is the most popular examination worldwide for 14-16 year olds and is seen as excellent preparation for A Level and other post 16 qualifications.
Our IGCSE courses follow a prescribed curriculum administered by examination boards in England. At POWIIS we use two examination boards to administer our examinations: Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (CAIE) and Edexcel. These are chosen by individual subjects, using their professional experience to provide the best possible outcomes for their students.
IGCSEs help students to develop their study skills, as well as techniques and approaches to interpreting information that will help them in their further studies as well as serve as a foundation for their careers.
All students at POWIIS study Mathematics, English Language & Literature and at least one Science. They then choose a further six subjects. Currently the options are:
Art, Drama, Music, Design Technology, History, Geography, Bahasa Melayu, Mandarin Chinese, Spanish, Computing, Physical Education, Further Maths, Economics, Business Studies, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and Double Award Science.
