Students at Dover Court work towards two sets of public exams, (i)GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) at the end of Year 11 and IBDP (International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme) at the end of Year 13.
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 (i)GCSE is one of the most challenging qualifications currently on offer for secondary students, before they embark on the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. At DCIS students sit the Edexcel GCSEs, we also offer certain AQA courses.
The International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) is globally recognised and respected programme for 16-18 year olds. At DCIS, students work towards the IBDP in Years 12 and 13. The Diploma Programme (DP) curriculum is made up of six subject groups and the DP core, comprising theory of knowledge (TOK), creativity, activity, service (CAS) and the extended essay. The IBDP is assessed both through internal and external assessment.
