Qualifications for global opportunities

EdexcelEdexcel academic qualifications equip students with the knowledge and skills to realise their ambitions and open doors to the university of their choice. They are developed to world-class standards, with up-to-date content that prepares students for 21st century challenges and improves learning outcomes worldwide.

Edexcel qualifications combine the rigour, traditions and quality associated with Pearson’s 150 year history as part of the British education system; with the methodology, content and support designed to enable your child to thrive in today’s global society.

GCE A Levels

GCE A Levels are among the most widely known and respected academic qualifications in the world. These are the gold-standard qualifications that inspire minds and provide access to the top global universities.

International Advanced Levels (IAL)

Written to the same rigorous standards as our Edexcel GCE A levels, IAL has been created for the unique needs of the global learner with a modular, flexible format and examinations in both January and June.

International GCSE

Providing the same high academic standard as GCSE, many International GCSEs have a distinct international element. Where possible, our specialists have developed subject content to allow teachers to base work on their own country, making it more relevant to students.


Globally recognised GCSEs enable seamless progression to academic and vocational study at level 3 and are the first step to further education, higher education and employment.

International Primary and Lower Secondary Curriculum (PLSC)

Developed by experienced primary and secondary educationalists to better prepare students for level 2, Edexcel PLSC provides a fully flexible, easy-to-implement curriculum framework and an effective way to monitor pupil progress.
