IGCSE SUBJECT SELECTION GUIDEBOOKINFORMATIONABOUT IGCSEWhat is IGCSE?IGCSE stands for ‘International GeneralCertificate of Secondary Education’. It is anexamination programme operated by theCambridge Assessment International Education,which has been specifically designed to meetthe needs of students studying in Englishmedium International Schools.When do students take the IGCSEprogramme?Students begin their IGCSE programme at thestart of Year 10. They follow the programme fortwo years with most of the final examinationstaking place in May and June of Year 11.Do all students follow the sameprogramme?No. The programme is divided into sevensubject blocks, and all students must take onefrom each block. All students also take part inCore PE and Wellbeing.Do all students follow each subject at thesame level?No. Some subjects have two levels of entry.In these subjects there is a Core level for allstudents and an Extended level for studentswho show higher potential. The details of thisvary from subject to subject and are explained inthe individual subject entries in this guidebook.How are IGCSE grades determined?IGCSE grades range from A* to G. Studentswho have followed the Core curriculum canachieve a grade from C to G only. The extendedcurriculum awards grades from A* to E. Thesegrades are determined by a combination ofwork done in school during the course, called6coursework, and a series of final examinations.Although it varies, the coursework usuallycounts for approximately 30% of the final grade.(In some subjects there is no coursework.)Coursework is marked at BISP and there isan established method, called moderation,to ensure that the standard of work and itsmarking are consistent with other schools inthe IGCSE programme. All final examinationsare sent to Cambridge for marking and thegrades are then determined centrally andcommunicated to the school. Students are thenpresented with certificates the following year inTerm 1.Do all students take the same number ofsubjects at IGCSE?No. Some students may be advised to takefewer than 7 IGCSE’s, particularly if we feelthat their English ability is limited. The aim is tospend Years 7, 8 and 9 preparing the groundfor students to start IGCSE courses in Year 10.Students who have had only one or two yearsof English medium education may be limited intheir choice of subjects and may in addition findthe IGCSE programme very challenging.

IGCSE SUBJECT SELECTION GUIDEBOOKIGCSECOURSE SELECTIONAs you are reviewing IGCSE courses you willfind some subjects have different levels of entry.There is a Core level for all students and anExtended level for students who show higherpotential. The details of this vary from subjectto subject and are explained in the individualsubject entries in this guidebook.Before making final decisions about IGCSEcourses, students will have several study skillslessons focused on exploring strengths andinterests, and meet with a BISP UniversityCounsellor to discuss their individual needs.It is important that students choose subjectsfor the right reasons. They should choosecourses that they enjoy, in which they havefound success, and perhaps those they wouldlike to pursue at the IB level and beyond. Donot make choices based upon what friends andclassmates are doing. Every student is differentand a course of study should be tailored to anindividual student’s academic background andskills.While students are only being asked to chooseIGCSE courses, it is important to consider theimplications of choices as students move tothe IB level. For example, if a student has plansto be a future Engineer, good scores will beneeded in IB Higher Level (HL) Mathematics.But to enroll in IB HL Mathematics, studentsmust be successful in the appropriate level ofIGCSE Mathematics. Realistically, if a studentdoes not like Mathematics, or finds the courseto be challenging, it is unlikely that a good gradewould be earned in IB HL Mathematics.7

IGCSE SUBJECT SELECTION GUIDEBOOKLOOKING AHEAD IB DIPLOMAThe International Baccalaureate DiplomaProgramme (DP) is a rigorous, academicallychallenging and balanced programme ofeducation designed to prepare students aged16 to 19 for success at university and lifebeyond. The DP aims to encourage studentsto be knowledgeable, inquiring, caring andcompassionate, and to develop interculturalunderstanding, open-mindedness and theattitudes necessary to respect and evaluate arange of viewpoints.At BISP, Year 12 and 13 (Key Stage Five)students study the IB Diploma Programme(IBDP), which culminates in externally assessedexaminations at the end of Year 13. The IBDPis similar to the UK A-Level system in thatit is an advanced two-year course for entryto university. Furthermore, the IBDP has theadded benefit of being designed specifically forinternational school students, providing a broadand balanced programme of study.The IBDP is recognised worldwide and isaccepted as an entrance qualification by leadinguniversities all over the world. Students take sixsubjects: three at Higher level (HL) and threeat Standard Level (SL). They must choosetwo languages (at least one must be at FirstLanguage level), Mathematics, one subject fromthe Individuals and Societies group, one subjectfrom the Experimental Sciences group and oneother subject that can be from the Arts group oran additional subject from the other groups.8For the IB Diploma, students must also studyTheory of Knowledge (TOK), complete a 4000word Extended Essay and complete a CAS(Creativity, Activity, Service) programme. Allsubjects are graded from one to seven with upto three bonus points awarded for the ExtendedEssay and TOK. The maximum score is 45and the minimum Diploma pass mark is 24(conditions apply). The final grade is based ona mixture of internal assessment and externallyassessed examinations. Please be aware thatIB Diploma subjects constantly undergo reviewsand are changed, added or removed by theIBO, hence the above information may not berelevant at the time of entry into Year 12. BISPwill keep you updated.

IGCSE SUBJECT SELECTION GUIDEBOOKLOOKING AHEAD POST-BISP PLANNINGBISP has a robust group of people working tosupport students with their post-BISP plans.Over 90% of BISP graduates attend university,but some go straight to employment, startathletic careers or join the military. In the past,students in the graduating class apply to andattend universities in over 10 different countriesevery year. Every student’s path and goal isdifferent, so students should always choose anacademic programme that suits them. Oftenby Year 9, students already have a sense ofthe kinds of courses they enjoy, but do not beconcerned if you do not. By identifying personaland academic strengths and building onthem, students will be successful in secondaryschool and beyond. Over the next four yearsthe BISP University Counsellors will work witheach student to develop an individualizedplan for life after BISP. All of us - students,parents and counsellors - will work together toidentify colleges and universities that will matchstudents’ career plans and academic profiles,as well as a family’s financial and passportcapabilities.decisions about the future may become easierto make. BISP Counsellors host universityvisitors, attend conferences and maintain globalnetworks to support their technical knowledgeabout Higher Education requirements, as wellas the unusual task of supporting a communitywith students with such diverse backgrounds. Inaddition, the counsellors work with the school’ssports coaches to assist students who wish topursue their sport at university or professionally.BISP uses Unifrog, a platform through whichstudents can find and apply for opportunities inEnglish, all over the world. Throughout Year 9,10and 11, Unifrog is used to explore a student’sinterests, strengths and possible career optionsthrough classes taught by the universitycounsellors. As each year goes by and studentslearn which courses are most appealing,9
