Years 10 & 11 | KS4 Curriculum

We call this Key Stage 4 and during these years students study for the academically rigorous IGCSE exams. This is an excellent preparation for A Levels and the first step in gaining entrance to the world's best universities.

IGCSE Exam Preparation 

In years 10 and 11 at BVIS, students take courses leading to IGCSE examinations in May and June of year 11.  The syllabus for these examinations, and the examinations themselves, are set and marked by a UK based examinations board, Cambridge International Examinations (CIE).  Cambridge IGCSEs are the most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds in the world. They are taken by students in over 145 countries and in more than 6,100 schools globally.

At BVIS all students take IGCSE maths, English and the co-ordinated science double award which means they get two IGCSEs in science.  In addition to these subjects, students take up to three more IGCSEs chosen from Art, Business Studies, Computer Science, Drama, Economics, Geography, History, Music and Physical Education.   

IGCSEs are important as they form the foundation of university admission. Good universities expect grade C or above passes in at least 5 IGCSE subjects including Maths and English. 

IGCSEs exems also form the foundation for moving on into Key stage 5 and the BVIS A-Level programs.

The Benefits of IGCSEs:

 

  • IGCSEs are widely recognised as the ‘gold standard’ in 14 to 16 examinations, they are valued by employers and universities all over the world.
  • As well as offering a balanced curriculum, our IGCSE program develops key academic skill in reading and writing, investigation, problem solving, teamwork, recall of knowledge, and initiative.
  • Most subject have a both a core and extended curriculum meaning students of all academic abilities benefit from an appropriate level of academic challenge so that they can achieve the best results possible.
  • The examinations are over 25 years old so have a proven track record of preparing students for the future, worldwide credibility and a large resource of past papers to help in revision.
