General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE)

GCSE is a two-year programme. Students study GCSE in Year 10 to 11 to prepare for the exam, which is similar Form 4 and 5 students studying for HKCEE in the old education system in Hong Kong. Students whose results have 5Cs or above are eligible for taking A-Level. With the certificate, they can also apply for foundation programmes in the UK.

Many overseas students see Year 10 as the beginning of their overseas study, without considering their needs to adapt the new environment and education system while trying hard to meet the requirement of the first year programme. This may causes negative influence on their academic results. Instead, if students start in Year 9, they can spend a year to adapt the environment and at the same time improving their language skills, which help them to perform better throughout the programme.
