During Years 10 and 11 students at ACG School Jakarta study a range of courses, some compulsory and some optional, which lead to examinations and internationally-recognised qualifications called the International General Certificates of Secondary Education (IGCSEs), at ACG School Jakarta we are authorised by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) to offer these qualifications. These courses have been specifically designed to meet the needs of students of International Schools such as those at ACG School Jakarta. They result in the award of internationally-recognised and respected qualifications equal to the GCSE exams that students in England take at this same stage of their education. Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds and is taught in over 10,000 schools in over 160 countries.
Deciding which courses to study in Years 10 and 11 is important because the qualifications gained at the end of the two years may affect a child's individual career path.
