IGCSE CIE Programme

“A well-educated mind will always have more questions than answers.”

– Helen Keller

MBIS is one of the best IGCSE schools in Mumbai that offers the Cambridge International IGCSE (International Secondary Certificate for Secondary Education) Programme in secondary school. The IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for the age group of 14 to 16 years. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and it is an international passport to progression and success.

The assessment process goes beyond just knowledge recall and emphasizes on other skills, like a student’s ability to apply knowledge appropriately, to handle information and use it to solve problems and to acquire experimental and investigative skills. It thereby helps students in developing creative thinking and problem-solving skills and is the perfect springboard to advanced studies.

Grades of achievement are bench-marked using eight internationally recognized grades, A* to G, which have clear guidelines to explain the standard of achievement for each grade.

Teaching and Learning Approach:

Our unique assessment process not only enables students to recall knowledge but also provides them with the ability to practically apply it appropriately to solve complex problems. This approach helps students in developing creative thinking and problem-solving skills acquired through experimental and investigative learning.

Peer teaching plays an important role to facilitate learning at MBIS. Students learn a great deal by explaining their ideas to others and participating in activities in which they can learn from their peers. They develop skills in organizing and planning learning activities, working collaboratively with others, giving and receiving feedback, and evaluating their learning.
