EXAMS PREPARATION

Russian International School organizes the preparation of pupils of all levels for the passing of examinations in different ways.

The format of the lessons: individual lessons, work in mini-groups, distance learning via Skype.

Our main principle is a 100% individual approach. We will choose a programme that is effective for your child, and if there is not one, we will work one out.

GSCE

Now more and more parents are eager to send their children to study abroad and one of the most popular destinations is Great Britain, which is famous worldwide for high educational standards.

The GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education) exam is  mandatory in the UK for children of 16 years, confirming the receipt of secondary education. In English schools, GSCE exams are usually awarded in different subjects (from 5 to 10), the choice of which is determined by the students themselves, but English, Mathematics, and Natural Sciences are obligatory.

The most prestigious educational institutions in England require students to achieve high grades in their GCSE exams.

The standard course of preparation for the GCSE exams in the Russian International School is two years, from 14 to 16 years. If the student is already 15 years old, he can pass the One Year GCSE programme in some subjects, but this option is applicable only for those who speak English well.

A-LEVEL

A-Level is a British two-year programme in high school, the main purpose of which is to prepare schoolchildren for admission to higher education.

 A-Level certificates are recognized not only in the UK, but all over the world.

The points received for the A-Level exams are the most important criterion for admission to university, so preparation for them should be approached as seriously and thoroughly as possible.

Teachers of the Russian International School have a lot of experience in preparing students for the A-Levels. Suitable subjects will be chosen based on the students’ ability and on the plans of the student and his family.

The standard course of preparation for the A-Level exams is two years, however, if necessary, we can create an individual training programme.

CAMBRIDGE LANGUAGE EXAMS

The purpose of passing the Cambridge exams is to obtain internationally recognized certificates, confirming the level of knowledge of English.

Russian International School is an accredited training centre for Cambridge exams. We help students, with any level of language,  feel confident and get high marks during testing.

Levels of Cambridge language tests:

1. For children from 7 to 12 years: YLE Tests (Cambridge Young Learners English Tests):

  • Starters – entry level;
  • Movers – intermediate level;
  • Flyers – a high level of proficiency in English.

  • KET (Key English Test) – exam of the first level of complexity.

  • CAE (Certificate in Advanced English) – confirmation of a high level of English proficiency and the ability to apply their knowledge for professional or educational purposes. The certificate is recognized by most British universities and other universities and confirms the language level required for admission.
  • CPE (Certificate of Proficiency in English) is a certificate of perfect language proficiency that exempts applicants in a number of countries from having to take exams for admission to educational institutions or for jobs requiring a high level of English proficiency.

SAT

SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) - an exam required for foreign students to enter universities in Canada and America. It consists of 3 parts and assesses, accordingly, the level of proficiency in English, mathematics and history.
