Minimum grade for the ICE certificate. You will get your ICE certificate if you get min G in six subjects from 5 groups. But it's important to get C at least in Maths and English because Universities might require it.
When taking IGCSE you can choose between Core and Extended papers. What's the difference?
What's the difference between AS and A level?
A level
is a 2-year course 1st year of which is called AS level
AS gives you 1 credit and A level gives you 2 credits
Usually you need 6 credits for University application
If you are planning to stay for Year 12 and 13 you should choose 4 AS subjects to study in Year 12
Focus on 3 for the A level in Year 13
Why are we here today?
To give you a clear picture about Cambridge qualifications

To help you make the right choices
the subjects your child will take at IGCSE level in May/June
Whether your child needs an ICE (International Certificate of Education)
Whether your child will stay at AIS to do
A levels
What are my next steps?
Fill out the Exam Entry Form and submit it to the secretary by Wednesday, January 30th
Discuss with your child and their teachers the subjects your child is going to do at A level next year
And finally ...
By now you should have a picture of what subjects you are going to do at
A levels
. In those subjects you should get above
grade C
in IGCSE so that you succeed in A levels
What is Cambridge?
The sooner you decide on the country and schools you would like to study in the more we can tailor your course selections
Thank you for your time and feel free to ask me anything now or contact me or your child's teachers later should you have any questions
