Our students are regularly admitted to such reputed colleges and universities as Presidency College, Jadavpur University, Loreto House and St. Xavier’s College at Calcutta, Symbiosis Institute and Fergusson College elsewhere in India, the London School of Economics and the Universities of Manchester, Wales and Nottingham in the UK as well as the Universities of Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Rutgers and Chicago, and Knox, Wooster and Claremont Colleges in the US to name a few. Colleges and universities in Canada, Australia, China and Singapore have also admitted many of our students.
Students who have pursued ‘A’ level education in India have consistently attained high academic achievements in Indian competitive tests and Indian universities for the last 30 years or so. ‘IGCSE’ and ‘A’ Level qualifications are accepted by all relevant educational institutions in India. The University of Calcutta, The Association of Indian Universities, the Joint Entrance Board and the IIT Boards recognise that (a) ‘IGCSE’ and ‘A’ Level qualifications are equivalent to corresponding qualifications obtained under relevant Indian Boards, and (b) students with ‘IGCSE’ and ‘A’ Level qualifications are as eligible for admission to Indian universities as students qualified under the Indian Boards. A full list of institutions and examining authorities in India which accept Cambridge qualifications can be downloaded here.
Unlike Higher Secondary/CBSE/ISCE, the curricula and the sessions are so timed that students can take some ‘A’ Level exams by November every year, be left with ample time to prepare for IIT and JEE tests and then take the other ‘A’ Level subjects. It lets students do everything a Higher Secondary/CBSE/ISCE student can do…take IIT and JEE tests or get into an Indian university while enjoying the option of universal acceptance. They find it easier to get admission and study overseas, especially in the US, the UK, Australia and Canada.
Cambridge ‘IGCSE’ and ‘A’ Levels enjoy widespread acceptance and preference in the English speaking world. It especially benefits students intending to study in the US and the UK after the Class XII level and beyond. All universities and colleges in the UK and around 150 US institutions including many major ones, offer credit for Cambridge ‘A’ Levels leading to time and cost savings while pursuing undergraduate studies.
