How to accomplish an effective pedagogy?


So is the British Educational system: The school year runs from September to July and is divided into three terms (semesters). The autumn term runs from September to Christmas, the Spring term runs from January to Easter and the Summer term runs from April to June.

Many children from age 2 ½ to four years of age attend pre-school. Primary schools are for children aged 4 to 11 years. This may also be referred to as Key Stage 1 (ages 4 to 7) and Key Stage 2 (ages 7 to 11). The first class in primary school is usually called the Reception class.

The subjects to be taught at primary schools are specified by the National Curriculum mainly for English, Mathematics and Science.

Between the ages of 11 and 16, children attend Secondary school, usually comprehensive schools where all abilities are taught. Secondary schools must follow the National Curriculum and assessment of the children takes place at Key Stage 3 (age 14) and Key Stage 4 (age 16). The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE)/EdExcel is the principal means of assessment for 16 year olds.

Education for 16 to 18 years old is usually referred to as Sixth Form, with the Lower Sixth and Upper Sixth. In the Lower Sixth, students study for AS level exams, usually in 3 or 4 subjects, leading on to A level exams (Advanced Level) usually in 3 subjects in the Upper Sixth.

Primary Stage:

The Primary Stage includes five classes divided as follows:

Kindergarten classes (PS, MS & GS) in addition to the first two classes in the primary stage (CP & CE1). This highlights the importance of the kindergarten classes in the sequence of study in the French BAC.
Expansion classes which include the last three classes (CE2, CM1 & CM2)



IGCSE/EdExcel System:


The IGCSE is the International General Certificate of Secondary Education. It is approved and recognized by universities and employers worldwide. It starts from IG1 to IG3.
The subjects in IGCSE are classified into three levels:
The Ordinary Level (OL)
Advanced Subsidiary Level (AS)
Advanced Level (AL)
NB: AS+A2 (of the same subject) = AL


The number of subjects needed to be accepted in the Egyptian Universities is:

Minimum of 8 OL subjects
Maximum of 8 OL subjects + 2 AL or 4 AS or (1 AL + 2 AS)
With the passing grade of up to "C" in the OLs and "D" in AS and ALs
Students must take the subjects over three years.



The Grading System:

A* = 100%
A = 95%
B = 85%
C = 67.5%
D = 60%

The main examination session is in May/June of each year. There is a second session for re-sits and/or new subjects which in November (for Cambridge subjects) and in January (for Edexcel subjects) of each year. The students can attend the exams up to five times during the 3 years of IGCSE.
· The release of results of May/June session is in August. The release of results of November session are in January. · There are 4 major compulsory subjects to be taken in Gr 10 (OL English, OL Math, OL Chemistry and OL Biology); plus a 5th optional subject to be chosen by the student (OL Arabic, OL Information and Communication Technology, OL French or OL Physics-for students from Pre-IG only). In addition to these subjects, the student must take the Egyptian Ministry of Education Curriculum subjects (Arabic, Religion, History, Geography & Civics)

· In Gr 11 and GR 12, the student will complete the rest of the required subjects. They can choose from a wide variety of subjects according to their choices such as Business Studies, Accounting, Art & Design, Psychology, Sociology, German and much more.
Along with these subjects, student will take the Egyptian Ministry of Education subjects; Arabic, Religion and Civics.

Only a passing grade is required for the Egyptian Subjects. Their grades will not be added to the IGCSE grades. You can find more information about IGCSE subjects on the following website: www.cie.org.uk / www.edexcel.com

What is Edexcel?

Edexcel, a Pearson company, is the UK's largest awarding body offering academic and vocational qualifications and testing to schools, colleges, employers and other places of learning in the UK and internationally.
Edexcel was formed in 1996 by the merger of the Business & Technology Education Council (BTEC), the UK's leading provider of vocational qualifications, and the University of London Examinations & Assessment Council (ULEAC), one of the major exam boards for GCSEs and A-levels.

What is the difference between Edexcel International Examinations and Cambridge International Examinations?

Edexcel and CIE are both examples of UK exam boards. They both provide a range of internationally recognized qualifications. There is no difference in the level or degree of difficulty between the IGCSEs offered by Edexcel and CIE. The differences are only in the way questions are asked and the format of the exams.
