Edexcels International Qualifications

The Pearson Edexcel High School Programme offers a range of qualifications for students aged 14 to 19, including GCSEs (General Certificate of Secondary Education), International GCSEs, A Levels, and International- A Levels (IAL). The Programme offers a high-quality education that prepares students for further study or employment.

The programme is designed to provide for 21st century learning by incorporating a range of modern teaching and learning techniques, as well as using technology to enhance the learning experience.  

  • Active learning is encouraged, where students are engaged in the learning process through activities, projects, and discussions. This approach to learning fosters critical thinking, collaboration, and problem-solving skills, which are essential for success in the 21st century.
  • Technology integration into the learning process, using digital resources, multimedia materials, and online platforms to enhance learning and engagement. This approach enables students to access information and resources anytime, anywhere, and to collaborate with peers and teachers in real-time.
  • Real-world relevance is a focus, where students learn concepts and skills that are applicable in their everyday lives and future careers. This approach to learning helps students to connect their learning to the world around them, and to develop skills that are in demand in the 21st century workplace.
  • Personalized learning where students can work at their own pace and level and receive targeted feedback and support from teachers. This approach to learning enables students to develop their strengths and address their weaknesses, and to learn in a way that best suits their individual needs and preferences.
  • Assessment for learning where assessments are designed to support the learning process rather than simply measure outcomes. This approach to assessment enables teachers to provide targeted feedback to students, and to help them to improve their understanding and skills.

Pearson Edexcel qualifications are recognised by the Association of Indian Universities (AIU) and are considered equivalent to Indian qualifications and many Indian universities accept Pearson Edexcel qualifications for admission to undergraduate and postgraduate programmes across fields such as engineering, business, and humanities.

Pearson Edexcel provides comprehensive support for international schools that are delivering their programmes which includes,

  • Curriculum resources: Pearson Edexcel provides a wide range of curriculum resources for international schools, including textbooks, digital resources, and teacher training materials. These resources are designed to help teachers deliver high-quality lessons and support students’ learning.
  • Assessment support: assessment support which include guidance on marking and grading, exemplar materials, and online assessment tools. This helps to ensure that assessments are fair, consistent, and reliable.
  • Professional development: They offer a range of professional development opportunities for teachers working in international schools. This includes online courses, face-to-face training, and workshops. This helps to ensure that teachers are up to date with the latest teaching methodologies and assessment practices.
  • Support from regional offices: Pearson Edexcel has regional offices around the world, which provide local support and expertise to international schools offering advice on curriculum delivery, assessment, and teacher training.

Pearson Edexcel offers a flexible curriculum by allowing International schools to  localise content, choose appropriate qualifications, offer language support, customising assessment, and collaborating with local organisations thereby enabling us to provide a high-quality education that is relevant and meaningful to our students.

The Board also offers flexibility for students to take exams as and when they are ready through its modular qualifications. Modular qualifications are designed to allow students to take individual modules or units of a qualification at different times, rather than having to take the entire qualification exam in one sitting. This approach allows students to work at their own pace and to take exams when they feel ready, rather than being constrained by a fixed exam schedule. For example, students who wish to retake an exam can do so without having to retake the entire qualification.

Pearson Edexcel also provides a range of support for students with special learning needs, to ensure that they have an equal opportunity to access education and achieve their full potential. These include –

  • Access arrangements for students with special learning needs, such as extra time, rest breaks, or use of a scribe or computer. These arrangements are designed to provide students with a level playing field, so that they can demonstrate their knowledge and skills in a fair and equitable way.
  • Special considerations for students with special learning needs who may be affected by circumstances outside of their control, such as illness, bereavement, or other personal issues. These considerations may include extra time, consideration of their performance in relation to their disability among others.
  • Alternative assessment arrangements for students with special learning needs who may not be able to access the standard assessment. These alternative arrangements may include oral examinations, practical assessments, or other forms of assessment that are better suited to the student’s needs.
