Terms & Exams
There are two semesters in the Academic Year. Each semester is approximately 17 weeks. Semester one and two are followed by semester exams. The students’ cumulative average from all semesters and exams determines the final average per subject.

In addition, students sit for various International Standardized Exams throughout the academic year (MAP, CAT4, IELTS/TOEFL, PSAT, SAT, TIMSS, PIRLS, PISA...).
