The curriculum offered at the IGCSE level is a unique combination of nine subjects to be learnt over two years in Grade 9 and 10.
We offer five compulsory subjects:
Following is the list of fourteen subjects curated from five different groups offered by Cambridge IGCSE. Students choose any four as optional subjects. The subject choices allow our learners at B D to qualify for the ICE award, which recognizes the academic achievement of students who pass examinations in at least seven subjects from five different subject groups, including two different languages.
The approaches to teaching and learning of each subject is aligned to foster a spirit of inquiry among our students. The syllabus content allows great scope to design engaging activities for students to help them develop problem solving skills and creative thinking skills. There is a good measure of interdisciplinary connections which students and teachers establish through group activities such as debates, exhibitions and Harkness discussions on different topics.
Each academic year is divided into four quarters during which student understanding is assessed through formative and summative assessments. The two years of IGCSE program at our school strengthen the foundation for our students to develop their conceptual understanding, critical thinking skills,collaboration and communication skills. This in turn prepares them to smoothly transition into IBDP and sustain their love for learning.
