Senior School: IGCSE
Students in Years 10 and 11 at Jerudong International School study a two year course: the IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) programme. The world’s most popular international certification for 14-16 year olds, the British programme culminates in a set of externally assessed examinations after two years of study at the end of Year 11.
These exams provide a solid foundation for the next stage of their education - pre-university courses - either A Level or the IB Diploma Examinations.
All students will study English, Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, Physics and a language (Bahasa Melayu or French or Spanish or Chinese or Malay). In addition, students choose a further three subjects from Art and Design, Business, Computer Science, Design and Technology (Food and Nutrition or Product Design or Textile Design), Drama, Economics, Geography, History, Media Studies, Music, Physical Education (PE), Triple Sciences.
Life in Years 10 and 11 is not just about studying for the IGCSEs though! Jerudong International School offers a wide range of opportunities and activities to enrich and enhance your child's education.
