International Exams


At IC, we believe that students’ studies should be acknowledged internationally. Therefore, we prepare them to sit for a number of international examinations at their different levels.


Cambridge Primary Checkpoint tests have been designed to assess learners in Mathematics, English and Science at the end of Primary 6. They provide valuable feedback on learners’ strengths and areas to improve on before they progress to the next stage of their education.


In 2017 our students also took the Trinity College Oral examinations. The Trinity Graded Examinations in Spoken English (GESE) are one-to-one, face-to-face assessments of speaking and listening skills. They are designed to complement the general English language programme and exam preparation focuses on the development of communicative skills and building confidence among candidates.


IC Secondary students sit for the following international examinations:


• First Certificate in English (FCE), University of Cambridge

• International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), University of Cambridge


International exams are designed to evaluate students’ understanding and performance in English. These standardized tests are designed to measure how well students learned the skills important to meet the standards of colleges and universities around the world.
