The IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) are internationally recognised qualifications studied by students aged 14-16 years old. Respected by universities worldwide, they cover a broad range of subjects including languages, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, computer science and more. The IGCSE is one of the most challenging qualifications currently on offer for secondary students, before they embark on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. At Dover Court International School, students sit the Edexcel IGCSEs and GCSEs. We also offer certain AQA courses.

In keeping with our offer of a broad, balanced and differentiated education programme, DCIS offers two strands of the IB programme: the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP) and IB Courses.

The IBDP is a rigorous, academically challenging and balanced programme designed to prepare students for success at university and life beyond. It is one of the most prestigious international qualifications available, respected and sought after by the world’s best universities. A core focus of the IB curriculum is to develop internationally minded young people, and encourage critical thinking and continuous self-reflection, both in academic courses and through extra-curricular activities.

The IBDP curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the core, comprising Theory of Knowledge (TOK), the Extended Essay (EE) and, Creativity, Activity and Service (CAS). The core is a compulsory part of the IBDP. Students choose six subjects, one from each group with three at Higher Level (HL) and three at Standard Level (SL). Students can achieve up to seven points for each subject, and a further three points for the core, making a total of 45. In 2023, the average IB score at DCIS was 35.0 points (compared to a worldwide average of 30.24). In addition, 100% of our IBDP students passed. Four of our students achieved 43 out of 45 possible points, placing them in the top 2% in the world.

Students that follow the IB courses curriculum have greater flexibility with their choice of HL and SL subjects, and elements of the core. Students can typically apply to universities in the UK, North America and some European countries. In the UK, offers will often require specific scores for HL courses, or will be in the form of UCAS tariff points for HL and SL courses. In North America, HL courses will frequently lead to academic credit for the first year of an undergraduate programme.

In addition, there are many colleges and universities around the world where admission is based on the completion of secondary education. Students progress onto a variety of academic or vocational pathways including, but not limited to, Polytechnic Foundation and diploma programmes in Singapore, university foundation programmes in the UK, and University bridging programmes in Australia and North America. 

Throughout Years 12 and 13, students receive tailored careers and university counselling to support their next steps following graduation. Students are guided to their ‘best-fit’ institutions based on their interests, aspirations and academic achievements.



The BTEC International Diploma in Business combines theory and practice in teaching and learning, which is assessed through written and practical tasks in work-related contexts. Students follow units in different business areas, including marketing, logistics, and entrepreneurship, and learn career-focused skills, such as communication and working in teams.
