The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) is an English language-based examination developed by University of Cambridge International Examinations, of which Abdulrahman Kanoo International School (ARKIS) is part of.  The examination boards Edexcel and Oxford AQA also offer their own versions of International GCSEs. The qualifications are based on individual subjects of study, which means that one receives an “IGCSE” qualification for each subject one takes. Typical “core” subjects for IGCSE candidates include a first Language, Second Language, Mathematics and one or more subjects in the Sciences. ARKIS graduated the fifteenth IGCSE cohort on Wednesday, October 19th, in the school’s “Palace Hall” and the ceremony was live streamed for parents and friends to watch from their home. In the presence of Ms. Kate Moskwa the School Principal, Ms. Emma Roony the Head of Secondary School, and Ms. Sameera Abu Rumman the IGCSE Examination officer & the Deputy Head of Secondary School, ARKIS congratulated its students for obtaining the IGCSE International Certificate, as well as honouring the students with the most outstanding results.

Speaking on behalf of the cohort ARKIS, Eyad Zouinekh and the school’s highest IGCSE noted, ” Hard work never betrays you, that’s what I believed for the two years of my IGCSE experience. I owe all my teachers, friends, family, and my relentless effort this position- Highest Achiever of my batch. This experience empowered me with the mindset saying, ‘People can go anywhere, as long as they work hard for it’. I feel nothing but hope for the brighter future yet to come, for that we are more than ready. “
