|Art and Design
||Applied Information and Communication Technology
Students will also have the opportunity to experience community service projects and activities as well taking part in regular PE lessons. All students will have private-study periods incorporated into their timetables.
Which Exam Board will KIS use to deliver the A Level programme?
KIS is already a certified examination centre for Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) and we will continue to work with this respected provider of the International A and AS levels which is part of Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge in the UK. Cambridge International A and AS Levels are taken in over 125 countries and CIE is the world’s largest provider of international qualifications for 14–19 year olds. Cambridge International qualifications are widely recognised and valued by universities and employers alike, with some US universities giving up to a year's credit for A Level passes. Every year, thousands of Cambridge International A Level students gain places at good universities worldwide - including the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. The International A and AS levels are also accepted as an entry qualification for universities in Europe alongside the French Baccalaureate and the German Abitur.
How long do the courses take?
Cambridge International A Levels normally take two years to complete.
What are AS Levels?
Most A Levels are divided into two sections with the Cambridge International AS Levels often representing the first half of an A Level course. Cambridge International AS Levels have half the content of the corresponding A Level and may be completed in one year. KIS will offer the Cambridge International AS Level as a qualification in its own right or as a stage on the way to a Cambridge International A Level. KIS students can study for a Cambridge International AS Level alongside other subjects to increase the breadth of their curriculum and to further build their knowledge and understanding in addition to the subjects they are studying at A Level. AS Levels carry half the value of an A Level as an entry qualification for university.
How many students will be in each class?
KIS is committed to small class sizes to ensure that all students get the individual attention they need to fulfill their academic potential.
What do students need to be accepted into the programme?
In general terms students accepted into the programme will have a minimum of 5 IGCSE/GCSE/SPM passes (A*-C) or the equivalent. Individual subjects may require students to have successfully completed an IGCSE/GCSE or the equivalent in that subject prior to entry, although all applications will be assessed on an individual basis. Potential applicants should refer to the entry requirements in the subject specific information for each course.
