Teaching and learning
In some countries, such as Singapore, Mauritius, Brunei, the Maldives and Seychelles, we work in partnership with the national examination body to set the curriculum and provide assessments for students in public sector schools.
National bodies can select from the wide range of subjects available at Cambridge O Level, Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A Level, according to the requirements of the national curriculum framework or of the schools themselves.
With over 70 subjects available at Cambridge IGCSE and over 50 at Cambridge International AS & A Level, including a number of national and regional languages available as first-language qualifications, our programmes and qualifications are flexible and adaptable to national needs.
As well as providing syllabuses and support materials and setting, marking and grading the assessments, we also offer a range of other services including capacity-building training, and professional development for assessment and curriculum professionals and teaching staff.
Since 1982, we have helped to shape Singapore’s education system. Throughout a number of reforms, Singapore’s ‘Cambridge Connection’ – built on mutual trust and understanding – continues to contribute to an educational system that is recognised for high-quality outcomes around the world. Every year tens of thousands of secondary learners take Singapore-Cambridge qualifications.
In 2011, the Indigenous Peoples’ Trust (MARA) of Malaysia, a statutory body reporting to the Ministry of Rural and Regional Development, made the decision to integrate Cambridge Secondary programmes into the curriculum for learners in all their Junior Science Colleges. Cambridge Checkpoint tests and Cambridge IGCSE qualifications are being introduced alongside the Malaysian national curriculum and assessments, in a bilingual programme in English and Bahasa Melayu.
We continue to develop new national relationships for the delivery of assessments, including English-medium and bilingual contexts. In 2009, the Ministry of Education of Bermuda made the decision to adopt Cambridge programmes and qualifications for all Bermudan state schools, beginning with Cambridge Secondary 1 and progressing to Cambridge IGCSE in 2012.
