Cambridge helps students become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Ready to tackle the demands of tomorrow’s world, capable of shaping a better world for the future.

The Cambridge Pathway is for students aged 5 to 19.

Its wide range of subjects and flexibility gives schools the chance to shape the curriculum so that it is exciting and relevant for their own students. The Cambridge Pathway prepares students for life – helping them to develop an informed curiosity and lasting passion for learning.

The four stages lead seamlessly from primary to secondary and pre-university years.

Each stage – Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced – builds on the learners’ development from the previous one, but can also be offered separately.

Five elements lie at the heart of a Cambridge education:

  • • international curriculum,
  • • teaching and learning,
  • • assessment,
  • • international recognition and
  • • global community

Cambridge IGCSE curriculum:

There are over 70 subjects available at Cambridge IGCSE, including 30 languages, and schools can offer them in any combination.

Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

  • • Subject content
  • • Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations
  • • Intellectual enquiry and responsiveness to change
  • • Working and communicating in English
  • • Influencing outcomes

What is the difference between IGCSE Core and IGCSE Extended?

To take into account differing abilities, there is a choice between Core and Extended curriculum papers in some subjects.

The Core curriculum is within the ability range of a large majority of students.

It provides a full overview of the subject and is targeted at students expected to achieve grades C to G. The Extended curriculum has been designed for the more academically able. It is targeted at those expected to achieve grades A* to E. Cambridge IGCSE subjects.

Grades are benchmarked using eight internationally recognised grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.

Cambridge IGCSE examination sessions occur twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January.

Cambridge Primary lower Secondary Checkpoint Diagnostic Tests :

TSI Offers Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests have been designed to assess learners at the end of Cambridge Primary. They are available in English, English as a second language, mathematics and science, and give valuable feedback on learners’ strengths and weaknesses before they progress to the next stage of education.

The tests are marked in Cambridge and provide schools with an external international benchmark for learner performance. Each learner receives a statement of achievement and a diagnostic feedback report, giving schools detailed information and parents extra trust in the feedback they receive.

We hold one Cambridge Primary Checkpoint test series each year, in April May . The tests cover all major areas of learning in the Cambridge Primary and Lower Secondary curriculum frameworks for English, English as a second language, mathematics and science.
