TNS is also a certified centre for the renowned Cambridge International Certificate of Secondary Education which is the international equivalent of the Cambridge O Level. It provides a broad and flexible study programme covering subjects from a variety of areas: Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Creative, Technical and Vocational. Cambridge IGCSE allows teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant in different regions. It is intended to be suitable for students whose first language may not be English and this is acknowledged throughout the examination process.

Schools worldwide have helped develop Cambridge IGCSE, which provides excellent preparation for the Cambridge Advanced stage including Cambridge International AS and A Levels and Cambridge Pre-U, as well as other progression routes. It incorporates the best in international education for learners at this level and develops in line with changing needs through regular updates and extensions.

As it is a qualification based on individual subjects of study, meaning one receives an \\\"IGCSE\\\" qualification for each subject one takes, schools worldwide have different expectations for their students as to how many IGCSEs should be taken.

A typical “core” curriculum for IGCSE candidates includes a First Language, Second Language, Mathematics and the Sciences. IGCSE candidates then choose a number of additional courses ranging from subjects from the Social Sciences to the Creative Arts.

Cambridge IGCSE encourages learner-centred and enquiry-based approaches to learning. It develops learners\\\' skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem-solving, giving them excellent preparation for the next stage in their education.

Schools can build a core curriculum, extend it to suit their learners and introduce cross-curricular perspectives. Clearly defined learning outcomes and content make Cambridge IGCSE compatible with other curricula, such as the International Baccalaureate programmes, and internationally relevant and sensitive to different needs and cultures.

Schools can offer any combination of subjects. Each subject is certificated separately. Over 70 subjects are available, including more than 30 language courses, offering a variety of routes for learners of different abilities. Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

  • Subject content
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to familiar and new situations
  • Intellectual enquiry
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  • Working and communicating in English
  • Influencing outcomes
  • Cultural awareness

Note: TNS runs the IB MYP and IGCSE in tandem.

While we follow the IB MYP framework from Classes 6-10, the final assessment will be the IGCSE exam and the MYP e-assessments from 2016.  All our students will appear for this exam as an entry point into the IB Diploma or, if they choose, the CIE A Levels at Newlands Beaconhouse in DHA Phase 6.

This exmination system is only valid at TNS as a full-subject offering until May 2017. Thereafter individual subjects - Islamiyat/Pakistan Studies and Urdu will be selected from the CIE bouquet as these are compulsory subjects for all Pakistanis and are not offered through IB.
