Choosing your International GCSE subjects
The UK International GCSE is an internationally recognized, publicly-examined secondary school (middle/high school) qualification accepted by educational institutions worldwide. Usually taken at about age 16, the main purpose is to provide access to final high school years or to a more vocational pathway such as college or training courses.
Note: Students can either come to Hong Kong to sit their exams at an ITS school or ITS will organize an alternate venue more locally. We will help you to decide the best option depending on factors such as which country you live in, which passport you hold, what your budget is, what time you have available and what other exam venues may exist near you.
Enjoyment – Try to choose subjects you think you will enjoy doing. Even if you are good at a certain subject, you might not actually enjoy it. If you look forward to lessons, chances are you will approach them confidently and enthusiastically and happily undertake your additional personal study. The end result is that you will likely gain much better exam results. If you don't enjoy a subject you should seriously question why you are considering it. That said, everyone should take Maths and English at International GCSE level. They are necessary for most further options.
