What is CIE (CAIE)

 

King’s College India has chosen to affiliate itself with Cambridge International Examinations board (CIE) for one simple reason. It is the leader in British Education overseas. Below is a brief summary of what it is.

CIE encompass many aspects of education, from curriculum, assessment, training and research.

Cambridge programmes prepare students for life – helping them to develop an informed curiosity and lasting passion for learning.

Cambridge helps students become confident, responsible, reflective, innovative and engaged. Ready to tackle the demands of tomorrow’s world, capable of shaping a better world for the future.

That’s why success with Cambridge opens doors to the world’s best universities – in the US, the UK, Australia, Canada and beyond.

It’s what you’d expect from an organisation that is part of the world-leading University of Cambridge.

There is a Cambridge Primary curriculum framework for each subject – English, English as a second language, mathematics and science – providing a clear teaching structure. Many schools use the integrated assessments to monitor learners’ progress.

Cambridge Lower Secondary offers schools a flexible curriculum that can be developed to suit their needs.

For learners, Cambridge IGCSE (International General Certificate in Secondary Education) helps improve performance by developing skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving. It is the perfect springboard to advanced study.

There are over 70 subjects available at Cambridge IGCSE, including 30 languages, and schools can offer them in any combination. Cambridge IGCSE develops learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

  • Subject content
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as unfamiliar situations
  • Intellectual enquiry
  • Flexibility and responsiveness to change
  • Working and communicating in English
  • Influencing outcomes
  • Cultural awareness.

We help schools to build a Cambridge Advanced curriculum that brings success for learners. The syllabuses prepare learners for university study, which is why universities worldwide value and recognise Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.

Cambridge International AS (Advanced Subsidiary) & A (Advanced) Level develops learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills in:

  • In-depth subject content
  • Independent thinking
  • Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as familiar situations
  • Handling and evaluating different types of information source
  • Thinking logically and presenting ordered and coherent arguments
  • Making judgements, recommendations and decisions
  • Presenting reasoned explanations, understanding implications and communicating them logically and clearly
  • Working and communicating in English.

You will note that some subjects are not offered by CIE and for these KCI follows the National Curriculum of England – which will be explained in a further blog.
