Nobel adopts the Cambridge Primary Programme. Cambridge Primary presents a curriculum framework to develop English, Mathematics and Science skills and knowledge for young children (6 to 11 years old) in preparation for their Junior and Senior school education.
For Junior School, Nobel offers the Cambridge Secondary 1 Programme. The programme provides a seamless progression from Cambridge Primary by offering a curriculum framework for educational success. Students are typically 11 to 14 years old. The emphasis is on the development of ENQUIRY skills.
Students from Junior School will automatically progress to Senior School and will take the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE), the world’s most popular international curriculum for 14 – 16 years old, which leads to the globally recognised and valued Cambridge IGCSE qualifications.
Students who completed the IGSE may proceed to enrol in A-Levels or pre-university.
The Checkpoint test is provided by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Checkpoint is not a formal qualification with a certificate (although a Statement of Achievement is produced). The papers are sent to Cambridge and marked by trained and skilled examiners.
Primary Checkpoint will be conducted at the end of the elementary phase of education in Year 6 as part of the long term assessment.
Junior & Senior students take the Checkpoint exam in Year 9. This is a good preparation for their IGCSE or O-Level examinations. From the Checkpoint test, students will learn which parts of the subject they are good in and which parts they need to make extra efforts. If they make use of this information, it will help them achieve better results in the future.
IGCSE is globally recognised.
There are over 30 CCA for students to choose from. Selection and payment are done online at the CCA website.
