Exams

Students at Island School sit examinations offered by the UK Examination Boards (EdexcelCIE and AQA) and the International Baccalaureate Organisation.

In Year 11, students sit GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) and IGCSE (International GCSE) examinations. Most of the examinations are those offered by Edexcel but a small number of CIE and AQA examinations are offered. Some students may sit some GCSE examinations in Year 10 (e.g Maths) but the majority of examinations are taken in May and June of Year 11. Results are published in late August.

In Year 12 and 13 students may study the IB (International Baccalaureate) Diploma programme, leading to examinations in six subjects in May of Year 13. Alternatively they may opt to study BTEC Level 3 courses (through Edexcel) which are assessed at different intervals throughout Years 12 and 13. IB Diploma results are published in early July.
