In Key Stage 3 (KS3), our students make the transition from Primary to Secondary, developing the broad range of skills needed to excel in the International GCSE exams.

IGCSE exam preparation
By the end of Primary, our students reach high English and Vietnamese literacy levels, before gradually increasing their exposure to English to meet the demands of external examinations in Secondary.

Most subjects are taught in English, but Vietnamese literacy is also given high priority on the timetable. Vietnamese geography and history are also taught in Vietnamese.

The curriculum and subsequent IGCSE exams are adapted from the National Curriculum of England, and provide an excellent foundation in preparing students for courses in Key Stage 4 and 5 which will lead to Cambridge University IGCSE and A Level examinations.

Cambridge University and Edexcel courses are offered in more than 9,000 schools in 160 countries around the globe, and grant access to the world's best universities.


At BVIS HCMC, we’ve combined an international curriculum with traditional Vietnamese values, giving our school a unique learning environment. Students learn to succeed, to focus on results and to make a difference in the world beyond the classroom.
