International Exams

International English and French language exams are a very important process of “benchmarking” our educational standards. In Primary school, our students begin this experience through taking the YLE (Young Learners English) exams offered by the University of Cambridge. These have three levels, beginning with Starters (in Grade 2), then Movers (in Grade 3) and Flyers (in Grade 4). Students are graded by Cambridge on a system of shields, ranging from one shield to a maximum of five. The following charts are a summary of our recent results in each of the three exams.

At the MYP level, our students take two sets of University of Cambridge English Language exams. One is the PET (Preliminary English Test) normally taken in Grade 7 and the other is the FCE (First for Schools), normally taken in Grade 9. Our students then move on to the bilingual demands of the IB programme in Grade 10. The following charts are a summary of our recent results in both exams.

At the MYP level, students also have the opportunity to take French language exams offered by the Alliance Francaise. These start in Grade 6 with Delf Primary A1 and go through to Delf Junior A2 in Grade 8 or 9. The students who follow the option of French within the IB Diploma programme in Grades 10 and 11 can also take the Delf Junior B1 and B2 exams. Our recent results are in the following charts.
