Preparatory year for IGCSE
3 - 5 subjects
Students can enter SiBS with 13 years of age to foundation year, where we will prepare them for the next stage of IGCSE or better known as the Cambridge certificate.
In grade 9 and 10 they choose up to 14 subjects (Usually students take 10 subjects even if they do less final exams in the end) and we prepare them for their final examinations at the end of grade 10.
In grade 11 students usually choose 5 AS level subjects and continue with 3-4, or in some cases even 5 subjects to final A-level class 12.
The subject selection depends on the students preferences and their plans for the future. Our academic staff and counselors help them in their decision making process by carefully listening to their wishes, reviewing their past success, monitoring their progress and accessing their overall ambition and competence from the firs contact before entering SiBS and to the very last day when we help them reach desired university enrolment.
