Senior School O/A Level
The Cambridge O level is one of the most recognized qualifications around the world. Cambridge O Level courses are renowned for developing vital educational skills, including the recall of knowledge, problem solving, decision making, evaluation and investigative skills. The resulting qualification provides a foundation for higher level courses, such as Cambridge International A and AS Levels, the Cambridge AICE, the North American Advanced Placement programme and the International Baccalaureate.
The A Level programme offers an invigorating educational experience; the choices and challenges are yours.
Scholarships
Merit scholarships may be availed at two levels. Firstly, deserving applicants may acquire scholarship on entering the programme. Secondly, students attaining 3 A’s in two consecutive testing may earn scholarships during the programme. Subsequently, their names enter the Director’s Roll of Honour. To remain eligible for the scholarship, a student must maintain an A grade in all subjects and 90% attendance in all classes. Failure to do so will result in the scholarship being transferred to the next deserving candidate.
