IGCSE & A Levels
The Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16-year-olds, attracting almost 500,000 entries from 144 different countries every year. This is a reinforcement of our core competence in being a school that provides a quality program focusing on individual learning needs, as well as personal growth.
St. Mark’s International School has been preparing students for the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) and Advanced Level (A-Level) since the inception of our secondary program back in August 2015. With fully qualified teachers who are experts in their fields, our students have excelled in all of their subject areas and this is reflected in the exceptional results achieved by them.
Over the last four years, our teachers have worked relentlessly with your children to engage with the community of young learners who are prepared to face global challenges with a special focus on Mathematics, Science, and Mandarin.
This long journey culminated in the declaration of our results during the last academic year in August 2018 and January 2019, where our Grade 8 and Grade 9 students performed brilliantly. Their achievements provided a class average score of 31% (receiving at least an A*) and 48% (receiving at least an A) on all the examination entries taken by our students during the academic year.
In the recent results just released in August 2019, our students’ results have once again become a cause for local celebration. Not only are our students achieving A*’s but they are attaining record-high scores on their results! One Grade 9 student, who took the exams one year ahead of time, achieved a magnificent 99% for Maths and 98% for Physics. Another Grade 9 student achieved 94% for Physics and another Grade 8 achieved a 96% for Mandarin. These are exceptional scores and we are so pleased with their standards.
We are happy to share the good news that during this examination season, our students have achieved A and A* on the following subjects they undertook, namely: Biology, Business Studies, Maths, Physics, and Mandarin. This is in addition to the previous stellar achievements in Chemistry, Maths, and Mandarin.
Not only have our students performed exceptionally well individually, but they have also accomplished excellent results across the entire cohort.
Statistically, our students have achieved the following:
• 31% of all students’ examination entries received an A*
• 62% of all students’ examination entries received an A* or an A
• 96% of all students’ examination entries received a C grade or higher
For us, these results are spectacular in a number of ways. Firstly, many of our students took the exams at least one or two years ahead of time. Secondly, they have achieved these results without assistance from any external tutors or support.
Our school can whole-heartedly claim that the results of these students are truly the product of our dedication and guidance. They are the achievement of our own students, who have been studying with us since they were young, several of whom have been with us since Nursery. With the examination statistics just presented, our students were able to achieve their result without having to go for any extra tuition classes outside of school.
Our manageable class size in a caring and supportive school environment, coupled with our dedicated and well-qualified teachers, have enabled us to focus on providing a quality program, especially in the area of Mathematics, Science and the Languages (English, Mandarin, Thai). We nurture each individual student according to their need, be it academic or personal growth. The support they receive, have made possible even for the average students to blossom and achieve their fullest potential.
