Years 12 and 13 | KS5 Curriculum

In Years 12 and 13 (16-18 years old) students study for A Level qualifications in specific subjects. We use syllabuses from both Cambridge International and Pearson Edexcel which are considered the gold standard of academic excellence and are accepted by all top-ranking universities around the world.

Students who have taken A Levels do very well at our campus. They are very well-prepared for our curriculum and we find that they have a lot of confidence, but also that they have a good deep subject knowledge, and the ability to think critically and well. Mr. Stuart Schmill - the Dean of Admissions at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Our global scale makes the whole world your child’s classroom

A Level students at BVIS are encouraged to cultivate their own interests and pursue their passion through activities and self-directed projects outside of the classroom.

Being part of the Nord Anglia family, giving us access to prestigious collaborations with leading organisations such as Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), the Juilliard School and UNICEF, BVIS offers a wide range of sports, residential trips and global/regional activities that help to build leadership skills, inspire confidence, and enhance understanding of social issues. BVIS students are not only academically successful, they become global citizens with a truly Vietnamese perspective.

What are the benefits of International A Levels?
  • Universities around the world, including all UK universities and more than 450 US universities, accept A Levels for entry. A Levels are seen as the equivalent to the Advanced Placement courses by American universities. The most prestigious universities including Oxford, Cambridge, Harvard, Yale, MIT and Stanford often see the best A Level applicants as their prime targets*.

  • A Levels provide a breadth and depth of study in Year 12 with further in-depth subject specialisation in Year 13. This provides a deep understanding of chosen subjects, enabling students to prepare for specific worldwide university courses and future career pathways.
  • Academic expectations at BVIS are high and A Level course content often exceeds initial university expectations.
  • A Levels enhance and develop critical thinking, advanced comprehension and research skills. In addition, they promote advanced literacy skills, particularly the ability to structure and defend an argument.
  • A Levels develop our students’ ability to present and participate in a debate and to positively engage with critical feedback.
 
How does Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) support BVIS?

BVIS is a registered examination centre for the Cambridge International A Levels. CAIE is the world’s largest provider of educational programmes and qualifications with over 9,000 schools across 160 countries. 

CAIE also supports the teaching of A Levels by offering a wealth of teaching and learning resources, as well as past exam papers and examiners’ reports. BVIS teachers are part of a network of highly expereinced professionals who receive continued professional development through regional courses organised by CAIE in order to ensure they are kept up to date with the latest educational thinking and resources.

Will my child need a high level of academic English to be accepted into the school?

This depends on their age and test results and/or school reports. In general, the older the child, the higher our expectations with regards to their English levels, because they should be able to follow the curriculum and be fully prepared for their graduation year exams. 

We have an excellent English support team, and accept students who may initially need assistance with their English, depending on their admissions test results. We aim to ensure that all of our children will thrive and flourish within our vibrant school community.
