Secondary Checkpoints are the first step towards a bright future in IGCSE. Grade 8 (year 9) appears for checkpoints by the end of their academic year. Being
an Associate School of Cambridge, Al Alameen registers the students directly via British Council. The results show the competency of each child in their core subjects.

Key Stage – 4 (IGCSE)
We offer a broad selection of IGCSEs for our students to recognize and develop their abilities from the very start. The International General Certificate of Secondary
Education (IGCSE) is one of the most profound certificates in the world. IGCSE courses are well known for developing vital educational skills, including recall of
knowledge, oral skills, problem solving, initiatives, teamwork and investigative skills.
It is universally acknowledged that students of IGCSE system are the most outstanding and prominent students in the higher education since they study the basics of
the modern science and technology according to the latest educational aids.
The idea of IGCSE is to give the students a broad general knowledge, from which they can then become increasingly specialised through A-levels and then their
undergraduate degree (or, more specialized still, a Masters or PHD). IGCSE are like the broad base of the pyramid, with subsequent qualifications getting increasingly
narrow in focus the further up the pyramid they go.

Our core IGCSE Subjects include
· Mathematics · Three Sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Biology) · English First Language
Apart from these students are given a healthy choice to broaden their breadth of knowledge.
Our foundation IGCSE Subjects include
· ICT · English Literature · Geography / Accounting · History / Business Studies · French

Many students will choose a good spread of subjects to keep their options open for further study (usually A Levels or careers). A reasonably broad portfolio of optional subjects is essential as this allows them to demonstrate strengths in different areas – universities and employers value this. However, breadth should be balanced against the need to play to their strengths and interests so as to generate the best possible grades and enjoyment of study. Al Alameen ensures the facts mentioned and guarantees the optimum benefit to our students.
