Vinschool’s 10th graders, due to their great effort and determination, obtained impressive results. They were able to conquer the challenging academic Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) programme, despite the Covid-19 pandemic across the whole world for the past two years, causing difficulties, which negatively impacted learning.

The latest results for Cambridge IGCSE, from Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) (ranging from A* – the highest grade to G – the lowest grade), shows:

  • 60% of the grades achieved are A* and A, significantly higher than the average grade in the same exams worldwide (only about 47%), according to CAIE Global. The rate of scores from C to A* is 82%;
  • As for Mathematics and Global Perspectives, the percentage of students achieving A* and A grades are 76.4% and 69.0% respectively, 1.5 times higher than the average grades of students around the world;
  • Individually, there are seven students who brilliantly obtained A* in all the five subjects – ESL, Mathematics, Sciences, Global Perspectives, and Computer Science.

At Vinschool, the IGCSE curriculum meets Cambridge International standards and is rigorously accredited by CAIE. In addition to professional knowledge, Vinsers are equipped with critical thinking, analytical, problem-solving, and life skills, which are important skills for a global citizen – a target set by Vinschool for its students.

Vinschool implements the IGCSE programme with seven subjects, specifically- ESL, Mathematics and Sciences (compulsory) and Computer Science, Global Perspectives, Economics, Art & Design (optional), which are personally appropriate and highly practical for Vinsers.

To start the programme, Vinsers do a multiple-choice test and are given a career counsellor’s advice to determine their own forte, goals and learning paths. There is a 1:1 academic counsellor accompanying them throughout their journey.

Cambridge IGCSE is widely recognised worldwide and transferable to international or pre-university schools. It is a worthy achievement for the efforts that the Vinsers have made over the past two academic years.

In particular, in the first IGCSE school year 2020-2021, online lessons were promptly organised by Vinchool, amidst the severe impacts of Covid-19, and the students did their best so as not to be interrupted by the pandemic.

Congratulations to all the students, parents and teachers at Vinschool!
