The Senior School curriculum at Sancta Maria International School consists of IGCSE and AS and A Level certifications.
The Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is provided by the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), the world’s largest provider of international qualifications for 14–16 year old students. Cambridge IGCSE is recognised by universities and institutes of higher education around the world and is equivalent in standard to the UK GCSE and Cambridge International GCSE O Level examinations. Cambridge IGCSE provides a stimulating and flexible curriculum, thoroughly supported with exceptional resources and training. This gives students of all ability levels, the freedom to choose subjects that are right for them.
Students may choose either Core and Extended Curriculum for English, Math and Science. The core curriculum is an overview of the subject and is suitable for students expected to achieve Grades C to G. The extended curriculum is like a specialization in that subject. It is more challenging and designed for students who are expected to achieve grades A* to C. Besides the five papers required for obtaining the IGCSE certificate, if students attempt and clear seven or more papers, they are awarded the International Certificate of Education (ICE), a group award of Cambridge IGCSE.
