Although our Class X students have the opportunity to seek admission to the IB Diploma Programme in Classes XI and XII, the final choices are driven by considerations of their own plans about further learning and future career preferences as well as the School’s standards of academic performance / achievement and norms of acceptable behavior.
The IGCSE board examinations are held in May-June and the results are announced online in the 2nd week of August every year, with the print copies of results available in the School by the 3rd week of August. The certificates are issued mid-October. These timelines do not synchronize with the admissions schedules of the Indian +2 boards (ISC/CBSE/HSC). Thus, the time-lag between the announcement of IGCSE results and the Class XI admissions timelines in India acts, to some extent, as a limiting factor with respect to options within the Indian curriculum.
Please note that we are shifting to the March series from the 2018-2020 batch. Also, the results of the March series are declared in mid- May. However it is also important to know that some students may still be appearing for the May- June series for any subjects that are not offered in the March series. The session for the 2018 batch, hence starts on April 3. For further information- please refer to www.cambridgeinternational.org
It is also pertinent to note that students who pursue programmes like the IB Diploma, GCE 'A' Levels and so on, after their IGCSE Class X, will also have the option to study at universities in India.
