For the Secondary years (Grades 9 & 10), Universal has built a core curriculum around the IGCSE, extended it to suit learners and introduced cross-curricular perspectives.

IGCSE is the world’s most popular 10th-level international curriculum. IGCSE is a comprehensive 2-year international curriculum (for Grades 9 & 10) that develops students’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry & problem solving, and gives them excellent preparation for the next stage in their education. At the beginning of the Universal’s 2-year IGCSE programme, learners are guided to choose subjects from 5 core subject groups. Each subject is certificated separately. Many subject choices are available, offering a variety of routes for learners of different abilities.

It lays an excellent foundation for learners who wish to continue with the Cambridge A/AS or the IB at the pre-university level.

IGCSE has world wide recognition from higher education institutions &  employers as evidence of academic ability. Grading is on an 8-point scale (A*–G). Grade C in English satisfies the English proficiency requirements of universities in English speaking countries.
