Lower Sixth During the first year of the Sixth Form, Year 12, the students study for their AS Levels. The majority of our students takes four AS levels in Year 1 of the course and continues three on to full A2 level in the second year, Year 13. However, we have students each year who continue on to successfully complete 4 or 5 A levels.
Universities across the globe generally expect students to have achieved three full A levels (to A2 level) and have at least one AS, as part of their admissions criteria. Although different universities have different requirements, most universities require a certain number of UCAS points to have been accrued only from A2 units.
Students take between 4 and 6 modules per subject over the two year course. These are examined as practical modules or are taken as external examinations which are sat at the end of the school year during the May/June exam session.
Students have the opportunity of resitting exams if they wish, for that the school policy still emphasizes May-June session and not October-November, keeping a streamline and focused academic preparation in mind. Students will be entered individually for exams based on their performance; in class, during regular assessment and via Mock exams. If a teacher feels that a student needs more time to mature into their subject then, in discussion with parents and the student, entry for certain modules may be held off until the second year.

To ensure the standard of students at Central High International School, we have the following requirements for prospective students.
Entry requirements for students joining CHIS in Year AS or A2 :
Minimum of 5 grade A-C at IGCSE;
Evidence of an interest in education and learning; and
Good behaviour reports from the previous school or College.
For students joining in Year 13 or for retakes, the grade requirement is not set in stone but evidence of interest and good behaviour is very important as we enroll students based on an expectation that they can add to the atmosphere and dynamic at Central High International School.
