  • Other Subjects Students can also choose other subjects ranging from Social Sciences (commonly Accounting, Business Studies, Economics, Sociology) to Arts & Technology (commonly Computer Studies, Information & Communication Technology (ICT), Art & Design)
  • IGCSE Grading Starting 2019, many schools have adopted the new grading standards (9-1) along with the old (A*-G), although A*-G remains predominant
  • Singapore’s Examination Boards Schools in Singapore use one of the two main examination boards, Cambridge Assessment International Education or Pearson Edexcel
  • Key Times Each IGCSE test centre is given specific key times based on their country and location. Singapore’s key times are 9:00AM, 1:00PM, and 5:00PM for morning, afternoon and evening sessions respectively

IGCSE Individual Course

Prep Zone Academy offers fully personalized & flexible IGCSE preparation with our Individual course. These sessions are conducted on a one-to-one basis, and can be scheduled any day of the week based on your availability. We offer lessons for a range of IGCSE subjects, and you can even continue onward with our IB preparation once done with your IGCSE exams.

  • Our trainers will identify the student’s weaknesses and concepts that need strengthening, and work on those
  • Coach students on strategies to further improve their scores keeping in mind the IGCSE scoring rubric
  • Implement those approaches with them in class using practice examples to reinforce accuracy and time efficiency
  • Trainers will send regular feedback emails and progress reports to parents to keep them in the loop
  • Reports include detailing topics covered, areas of improvement, identifying & targeting knowledge gaps
  • Personalised study plan based on student’s performance level

Most of our students prefer to come in for regular lessons every week so they can be fully prepped and stay ahead of their class, though you’re also welcome to come in to focus on specific areas where you need help, or to work on last-minute issues leading up to your school tests.
