You want your child to excel. So do we. We pride ourselves on academic achievement at the Nord Anglia International School Guangzhou, and ensure students are well prepared for the next step in their educational journey. Moving on to The British School of Guangzhou, students enter Secondary and work towards their IGCSEs and A Levels.
International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)
Taken when students are 16 years of age, IGCSEs are designed to provide your child with broad and balanced programmes of study in a number of subject areas that develop critical thinking, analytical skills and the ability to communicate ideas effectively. Our IGCSE results are as good as or better than many top private schools in the UK, with BSG students often outperforming those from institutions such as Eton and Harrow.
2020 IGCSE RESULTS
The two main criteria that are used to judge examination performance for 16 year olds in the UK are; achieving 5 grades at 'C' or above, and the number of the highest grades achieved. We are very proud that 97% of all examinations sat by the British School of Guangzhou students received grade 'C' or above.
This is a tremendous achievement, but our top students really shone with 58% of exams taken awarded either grade 'A*' or 'A '- the highest possible grades. This is compared to the UK's average of 20%, showing just how far ahead our students are as they move to university entry.
Advanced Level (A-Level)
The A-Level programme is a globally accepted qualification for students aged 18, as they look at gaining entry into universities and colleges. All USA, UK, Australian, Canadian, European and Asian universities accept A-Level qualifications. This includes the added benefit of possible advanced placement, as A-Level study offers a higher degree of specialisation than the IB programme.
2020 A-LEVEL RESULTS
With a 99% pass rate, our A-Level results are testament to our academic success and commitment to building a lifelong love of learning.
54% of exams taken by our students achieved an 'A' or 'A*' grade (UK average 25%). 76% achieved A*- B grades (UK average 52%).
