Cambridge IGCSE level (International General Certificate of Secondary Education, equivalent to Grade 9 & 10/form 2 & 3) and Cambridge International AS Level (Advanced subsidiary- Grade 11 & 12/form 4 & 5) and A level (Advanced level).
IGCSE: IGCSE qualifications provide a solid foundation for higher level courses such as A and AS Levels, as well as excellent preparation for employment. IGCSE has been designed to equip students with the skills needed for immediate employment. A minimum requirement for an RSA Matriculation Certificate is: 5 IGCSE + 2 AS subjects.
The I.V. school is a registered Cambridge (CIE) examination centre. International Virtual School will be using the premises of the sister school The Mountain Cambridge School, a registered Cambridge examination centre, for any students wishing to write.
There will be no extra charge, excepting examination fees, for any I.V. student to write at the Mountain Cambridge School, which is situated in Hartbeespoort, in the North-West Province of South Africa.
If for any reason the Mountain Cambridge School is unavailable for the examination session or a student can not write at this venue , an alternative arrangement will be made.
Examination fees are not included under tuition fees and are paid separately at time of entry for exams. Fees are subject to changes according to the exchange rate at time of entry. Exam fees are payable during August for the November session. Penalty fees apply for late entries.

No, not currently
Our technical team will direct subject specific questions and queries to the teacher involved
We will require the teachers to be available online for live questioning at certain periods of the week/day. Students have regular weekly contact with their Adviser teacher with monthly one-on-one meetings to review goals and progress should the learner require/request it.
When an educator observes a student having difficulty academically, the following steps will be taken:
- The material will be re-taught in form of extra exercises or worksheets online or requested one on one meetings to see if the learner simply missed a key learning opportunity.
- The above-mentioned children will be discussed at the monthly Phase meeting and the Deputy will be responsible for recording the teachers’ concerns.
- An action plan, to be implemented by the subject teacher to assist the student, will be discussed. This will also be noted by the Deputy.
- A referral/thinking solution meeting online with the student’s parents will then be arranged if necessary to discuss the situation, identify the possible causes of the problem, and plan a course of action.
- If no improvement is noticed the parents must be advised to seek professional intervention.
- The subject teacher must implement what is required of her/him and monitor the student.
- The subject teacher will be required to give continual feedback to the parents and deputy.
- All feedback and minutes will be recorded by the deputy and forwarded to the Head of Centre.
- Needs Assessment – Concessions during examinations: CIE allows students with special needs to apply for concessions. An Educational Psychologist report must be handed in for approval.
