The English National Curriculum has been in use for a good many years but has proven extremely popular as an academic resource for skills development. The Curriculum is a broad and quite well-defined approach that encompasses the arts, sciences and humanities. The curriculum will aim at fostering the spiritual, economic, cultural and social advancement of the pupils and preparing all pupils for life’s opportunities, obligations and experiences.
The Cambridge International system has an integrated method of evaluation and remediation. Progress is tracked and assessed from primary through to IGCSE and on to “A” level at all key levels. The coursework provides comprehensive individual progress to parents, pupils and teachers all through the length of the course.
In the Primary process, when grooming them for Secondary school, the children are carefully directed through the foundations of literacy, numeracy and science. Primary school is divided into Key Stage 1 which covers years 1 and 2 and Key Stage 2 which covers years 3,4 and 5. Students get an in-depth understanding of Maths, English and Science during the primary level.
Secondary school programme involves Key Stage 3 which covers Year 7, Year 8 and Year 9. Through Secondary School, in a supportive and caring community, the students move towards the globally validated Cambridge exams at the IGCSE and A-Level levels. The syllabus of Cambridge International is designed to promote the practical application of the accumulated knowledge and experience.
MAHSA International School has moved to a new green school campus recently which is fully equipped with a football field, basketball court, tennis court and a swimming pool. The school has a play space and an eco-green house for students. The school puts a lot of emphasis on co-curricular activities and organises a number of performing arts and dance programmes from time to time.
Cambridge International AS and A Levels are international in outlook but retain a local relevance.

How many A-Level Subject should I take?

It is vital that you choose your subjects with care. Talk to your parents and teachers about the courses you are interested in. Talk to students already studying for A-Levels about the subjects. Think about your future plans. There are common combinations of subjects, that often complement each other, and the option blocks from which you choose will have been based around these.
