Dear parent and students,
We would like to inform you that Providence English Private School is now an approved center for the new Oxford International AQA Examinations, that in addition to our Cambridge International Examination Center.
Curriculum of Oxford and Cambridge are very similar in all means, and follow same aspects for examinations in High School as I/GCSE - As - A level. The structure of examination is different. (this will be available for students in Academic year 2017/2018)
Following is a brief by Oxford International AQA Examinations Website:
Oxford International AQA Examinations reflect the latest UK standards for increased rigour.
As a British curriculum school, naturally you want your results to be aligned with schools in the UK, now and in the future.
That's why our international GCSEs are based on the forthcoming 9-1 grading structure that will be implemented in England from 2017, replacing the existing A*-G system.
We have retained the flexible modular benefits of AS qualifications, whilst ensuring they meet the rigour and standards of the new linear UK A-levels.
This all means students have the assurance that their qualifications are sufficiently flexible whilst also being relevant, opening opportunities wherever they decide to go in the future.
