Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) (Upper Secondary Division)
AAIS continues with the implementation of the IGCSE at the Upper Secondary level. To help students apply content knowledge in projects of their interests and practice working and communicating skills in English, AAIS Upper Secondary students are exposed to research opportunities. Students learn to identify issues, justify ways leading to results, and making appropriate presentations in both verbal and written formats. To emphasize the impact of process on outcomes, AAIS engages learners to participate in reflective sessions to guide students to learn to observe and take notes of what they have learnt from the process, what they have learnt from others, and how they can improve in the future. This is a crucial step. Students conduct self-evaluation and peer review to learn the value of quality approaches to teaching and learning. They then become independent learners who are critical, comfortable and capable of stepping outside the box. In this setting, not only are AAIS Upper Secondary students fit for high academic standards but they are also equipped with transferrable skills widely-recognized and needed in real life across disciplines and cultures.
The objective of this course is to prepare students for the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) Examinations, giving them a better understanding and overview of the Cambridge IGCSE Examinations academic subjects comprising of English, Mathematics, Additional Mathematics, Physics and more.
