Examination centre

The Academia International Schools in Basel and Zurich are also examination centres accredited by Pearson Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment International Education. Our students generally take their exams on our premises in Basel. From 2021 students will be able to sit their examinations at our Zurich examination centre. Please note 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.

Our examination centre is also open to external candidates.

«Wir können Prüfungen mehrere Male wiederholen. Das gibt mir Sicherheit. Ich kann alle Fächer in Ruhe angehen und mir die Zeit nehmen, die ich brauche.»
