Advanced Programme Mathematics and Advanced Programme English
esigned to challenge the talented Mathematics and English pupils, these courses are offered in Grades 10 – 12. They are rigorous yet interesting courses, demanding self-discipline and motivation from the pupils to cope with the additional work load.
These curricula were developed by the IEB and are not part of the NSC.
These Advanced Programmes provide capable pupils with an opportunity to focus on specific subject areas in greater detail and depth. The intention is to better prepare these pupils for tertiary study.
The UK NARIC report completed for the IEB in 2010 stated that candidates who undertook the IEB Advanced Programme in Mathematics and English were covering a syllabus “more reflective of the requirements of the GCE A level in these subjects.”
