Cambridge Pre-U

Cambridge Pre-U is a new two-year curriculum designed by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). It was officially launched in 2008 and adopted by some UK schools including Eton College, Down House, Oundle School and Uppingham School. It is getting popular in the UK and worldwide.

Cambridge Pre-U combined the features of A-Levels and IBDP. Many people see it as an upgraded version of A-Levels. It is recognised by many higher education institutions, including University of Cambridge, University of Oxford as well as all the Ivy League in the United States.

 

 

Selection of subjects

The structure of Pre-U and A-Levels share many similarities, but Pre-U provides more flexibilities. Student must complete GPR and 3 to 4 principal subjects in order to achieve the Pre-U Diploma.

 

Compulsory Subject - GPR

GPR is divided into two components: Glocal Perspectives and Independent Research Project. The results of the two components will be combined as one score.

 

Principal Subject

In general students choose 3 to 4 subjects from 25 options. They can also combine their studies with Pre-U and A-Levels, for example selecting two subjects from Cambridge Pre-U and one subject from A-Levels, and later apply universities with the combined result.
