Cambridge IGCSE

The Cambridge IGCSE programme helps students to acquire knowledge, understanding and skills in the subject they study through intellectual enquiry and intellectual enquiry. The Cambridge IGCSE programme has been designed for students worldwide, including those whose first language is not English.

With the Cambridge Pathway, your child is joining a global community of learners from more than 10 000 schools in over 160 countries. By developing a global outlook in Cambridge learners, we aim to equip them for success in the fast-changing modern world.

A Cambridge IGCSE qualification is recognised by leading universities around the world and employers view it as a valuable certificate of achievement. In the UK, Cambridge IGCSE is accepted as equivalent to the GCSE. A good grade (grade C or above) in Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language is accepted for entry by a number of universities in the UK as evidence of competence in the English language.

Many universities worldwide require a combination of Cambridge IGCSEs and Cambridge International A Levels to meet their entry requirements. Leading US and Canadian universities require Cambridge International AS& A Levels, but some US and Canadian colleges and universities will accept students with five Cambridge IGCSEs at grade C or above.

Cambridge assessments do not simply test recall of knowledge but also tests learners ability to draw on their understanding in order to analyse, evaluate and synthesise ideas. In this way, Cambridge programmes and qualifications are best taught using active learning approaches which are also more engaging for students. Encouraging active learning enables learners to attain higher grades, based on their enhanced understanding, and better prepares them for further education and as well as for the workplace.

Every year, nearly a million Cambridge learners from 10 000 schools in over 160 countries prepare for their future with an international education from Cambridge.

Cambridge has a 150-year history of providing international exams. It is a not-for-profit organisation and the only exam board wholly owned by aworld-leading university.


Your child’s needs as a learner are at the heart of Our approach to education. Our Cambridge Programme aims to give your child a love of learning that will stay with them through school, university and beyond.

Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE)
Let the education open your mind and heart

At Akal Academy Baru Sahib, our Cambridge Assessment International Education programme adopt ‘active learning’ as our classroom approach. This acknowledges that our learners are active in the learning process by building knowledge and understanding in response to learning opportunities provided by their teacher. This style of learning contrasts with a model of instruction whereby knowledge is imparted or transmitted from the teacher to students.

Active learning primarily includes:
Student-centred learning - Students play an active role in their learning, with the teacher as an activator of learning, rather than an instructor

Enquiry-based learning - Students learn by addressing and a posing scientific questions, analysing evidence, connecting gs such evidence to prior theoretical knowledge, drawing conclusions, and reflecting upon their findings

Experiential learning - Learning takes place through direct experience. Learning should be relevant and situated within a meaningful context. We learn best when we can see the

Learning is developmental. Learning experiences for children, therefore, should be age-appropriate although development level and age are not always concurrent.


Cambridge Assessment International Education(CAIE) prepares school students for life, helping them develop an informed curiosity and a lasting passion for knowledge.

The Cambridge Pathway gives students a clear path for educational success from age 5 to 19 through, Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Lower Secondary, Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced programmes. At Akal Academy Baru Sahib, we offer Cambridge Upper Secondary and Cambridge Advanced programme, shaping the curriculum around a wide range of subjects and using flexible ways to offer them. It helps our students discover new abilities and a wider world, and gives them the skills they need for life, so they can achieve excellence at school, university and professional world.

Our ‘Learner-centered’ teachers set their teaching in real world contexts; finding out learners’ starting points of understanding before they plan how to enable them to learn. Because of this, a learner-centred teacher will focus on differentiation, and will use strategies associated with assessment for learning, including:
➤ effective questioning
➤ sharing of assessment criteria
➤ provision of feedback
➤ peer assessment and self-assessment
➤ using assessment information to adapt their teaching methodology

The Cambridge approach supports us to develop learners who are confident of ideas and information that they have learnt or gathered. Such learners are also respectful of others ideas and perspectives. They have ability to innovate, engage socially and intellectually with new environment so as to make distinct contribution in any field of endeavors,
