At St. John’s International School, we prepare students for the General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level qualification through examinations by the University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). CIE is one of the world’s leading providers of international qualifications and assessments, and is part of the University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES) which has developed and promoted qualifications around the world for almost 150 years. The A Level is a worldwide internationally recognised Pre-University Qualification. The GCE A Level qualification emphasises on knowledge, understanding, reasoning abilities and skills. It is one of the most recognised pre-university qualifications in the world, and is accepted as proof of academic ability for entry into world-class universities in the United Kingdom, USA, Singapore, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and Malaysia, to name a few.

SJIS’s A Level programme follows the new structure of examinations: Advanced Subsidiary (AS) and Advanced Level (A2). Students are prepared for the examinations in 2 phases, which takes away the pressure of one set of final examinations at the end. The standard 18 months programme consists of 3 semesters, each approximately 6 months long. Students will sit for their AS examinations at the end of Semester Two and their A2 examinations at the end of Semester Three.
