IGCSE Exam Preparation for Private Candidate

The IGCSE is usually a 2-year program done in International Schools at age 14-16. At Prep Zone Academy, students who enrol as private candidates have the opportunity to attend intensive preparation and sit for the exam in less than 1 year.

Studying as a private candidate for international qualifications in Singapore is uncommon. Given that your child will not be receiving academic support from a school, it is advisable to find the best tutors to guide them through their learning journey.

Regular Attendance Policy

Students are required to attend at least one (1) 1.5-hour session per subject every week. This policy is implemented to instil academic discipline and avoid any last minute preparation.

We notice that students who do not do so end up attending many sessions prior to their test/exam in order to cover the required syllabus, which leads to an unnecessary level of stress and poor performance.

Not only does regular attendance overcome these issues, the respective trainers are able to track the students’ progress and quickly detect any gaps/weaknesses. This allows the trainers to come up with a personalised approach to best support the students.
