Examination centre

Academia International Schools in Basel and Zurich are also examination centres accredited by Pearson Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment International Education. Our students sit their official examinations at our centres which means their IGCSEs after two years and their IALs after four.

Each subject is examined individually. Sometimes several exams are required for one subject. Students are able to re-sit IGCSEs as often as is required and at A/S and A level students are able to repeat individual units as often as required. However, please note, repeating examinations may impact a students’ academic programme and progress in particular subjects within their schools. Examinations are set and corrected by external UK based examining boards. Cambridge Assessment International Examinations and Pearson Edexcel.

Both examination centres are also open to external candidates.
