Introduction

What is IGCSE?

The IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) is a two year programme leading to externally set, marked and certificated examinations from the University of Cambridge. It is a unique UK government endorsed programme provided to thousands of schools around the world. Our students are offered a curriculum across Years 9 and 10 that includes around 7 IGCSE examination subjects. These include the core ones of Arabic, English Language, Mathematics and Coordinated Science. The other subjects offered are Art, English Literature, Global Perspectives, Travel & Tourism, Business Studies, ICT (Information and Communication Technology) and Economics which are offered in option blocks. Exactly what is available in a particular year will depend upon a number of factors. What is ensured is suitability for our students and the key curriculum factors of breadth and balance. Depth and quality goes without saying with all Cambridge courses!

IGCSE Structure

IGCSEs are two year courses designed for 14 to 16 year olds. IGCSEs are known for developing vital educational knowledge, understanding and skills. They are established qualifications that keep pace with educational developments and trends and so are an ideal foundation for higher level courses such as AS and A Levels, the International Baccalaureate Diploma and most importantly the Oman GED. Recognised throughout the world, by academic institutes and employers, they are a mark of quality and evidence of real ability.

Students at Al Sahwa sit seven subjects in one session at the end of Year 10. Schools can offer any combination of subjects with each subject being certificated separately. Over 70 subjects are available, offering something for all learners of different abilities, interests and backgrounds thus the school offers what we believe is suitable for our students at Al Sahwa Schools.

The Cambridge IGCSE Art and Design syllabus aims to encourage a personal response by stimulating imagination, conceptual thinking, powers of observation and analytical ability. Learners gain confidence and enthusiasm as they develop technical skills in two and three dimensional form and composition, and are able to identify and solve problems in visual and tactile forms. They also learn how to develop ideas from initial attempts to final solutions. An ideal foundation for further study, Cambridge IGCSE Art and Design also develops a greater awareness of the role played by the visual arts in society and in history, broadening cultural horizons and individual experience.
