WHAT IS O LEVEL?

Students that have completed O-Level are considered to have completed their formal education and thus are awarded with final certification of secondary school. Cambridge O-Level is conducted by CIE (Cambridge International Examination). It is an internationally recognized qualification equivalent to Cambridge IGCSE and the UK GCSE. O- Level provides students with excellent preparations for future academic progressions.

  • Cambridge O-Level, has been designed especially for the international audience in a way that cater the needs of different countries and for students whose first language may not be English.
  • The curriculum also enables teaching to be placed in a localized context making it relevant where ever you teach.
  • In some parts of the world including Pakistan, schools use Cambridge O-Level as an alternative (international) to the local government’s examination.
