For more than 25 years we have been the official testing center of Pearson, thus enabling students to be examined in a familiar environment.
With the IGCSE courses we offer, we prepare and familiarize our students with this new education system, before sitting for the A-Levels, and at the same time, we enable them to obtain IGCSE certifications that will enrich their UCAS application during the last year of their studies at A-Levels.
The GCE / IAL Course Curriculum that we offer is the same Secondary Education curriculum, with a minimum duration of one year, followed by the majority of Senior High Schools in England and Wales and serves as a Certificate of Admission to British Higher Education. It lasts 1 to 2 years and is formed based on the stream of studies. It has the same specifications, examinations are held in the same way and it is recognized as all GCEs obtained in the UK or elsewhere. The GCE / IAL A-Level courses provide correspondence with the national certificate of graduation but do not provide equivalence, necessary for anyone interested in sitting for the Panhellenic Examinations. In case a student wants to leave open the decision for studies in Greece or abroad, then he/she should attend the GCE program in parallel with the Senior High School classes.
