The GCSE and IGCSE are internationally-respected qualifications studied by students aged 14-16 years old. Respected by employers and universities, they cover a broad range of core subjects including languages, humanities, social sciences, mathematics, creative, technical and vocational. Some of the most academically challenging qualifications currently on offer to 14-16 year old students worldwide, many candidates go on to study the International Baccalaureate.

The continued success in GCSE and IGCSE results is a testament of NAIS Pudong’s high academic standards, excellent teaching and the hard work and dedication of students. Students continue to significantly outperform UK national averages, with attainment levels increasing year-on-year. 

  • 62% of all GCSE and IGCSE grades achieved by NAIS Pudong students were at the highest levels of A* or A. This is 42% higher than the 2017 UK average of 20%.
  • The percentage of our students achieving 5A* - C grades, including English and Maths at GCSE and IGCSE has risen from 90% to 95%, significantly outperforming last year’s school averages and 29% higher than the UK.



"We are immensely proud to celebrate the outstanding results of our GCSE students. A staggering 62% of entries achieved A* to A grades, significantly outshining the results in the UK of 20%. 18 of our students amazingly achieved 8 or more A* to A grades in their portfolio of impressive results. This truly highlights the dedication to academic excellence by NAIS Pudong students, as year after year, they embody what it means to 'be ambitious',"
Lesley-Ann Wallace, Principal of NAIS Pudong commented.



These exceptional results are the culmination of the hard work and dedication of our students, our ambitious approach and the support of our excellent teachers. On behalf of our school community, we would like to take this opportunity to thank our teachers for always inspiring and challenging our students to achieve more than what they may have thought possible.

GCSEs and IGCSEs are some of the most academically challenging courses currently on offer to 14-16 year old students worldwide. They are respected by universities and employers and offer students the opportunity to study a broad range of subjects in preparation for further study aged 16-18 through the International Baccalaureate.

A continuation of the English National Curriculum, the full two-year program features a combination of coursework and exam work. Students will generally take ten subjects and upon passing are awarded qualifications in a full range of core subjects including languages, sciences, humanities, social sciences, arts and design and mathematics. Top universities around the world look to these qualifications as a benchmark of academic performance when considering applications.
