Les certifications

L’Ecole internationale propose aux élèves de passer des certifications facultatives destinées à attester d’un niveau acquis en langue - tel que le Diplôme d'Etudes en Langue Française (DELF), le Diplôme Approfondi de Langue Française (DALF), le HSK (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi, certification en langue chinoise), le Deutsches Sprachdiplom der KMK (Kultusministerkonferenz, certification de langue allemande) et First Certificate of Cambridge - ou un niveau d’étude tel que l’IGCSE Britannique (International General Certificate of Secondary Education).

A la suite d’une procédure d’agrément, l’Ecole internationale a obtenu l’habilitation pour devenir centre d’examen Edexcel. Les élèves ont donc la possibilité de passer dans l’établissement les certifications britanniques « International GCSEs » et, dès l’année 2012, de présenter le « A level ».


En 2011-2012, 9 élèves ont été présentés au DELF qu’ils ont tous obtenus (3 au niveau A1, 4 au niveau A2, 2 au niveau B1).

En 2010-2011, 23 élèves de l’Ecole Internationale ont été admis au Diplôme d’Etude en Langue Française (DELF), dont 5 au niveau A1, 9 au niveau A2 et 9 au niveau B1.

Rappel :

Le DELF A1 valide la maitrise des premiers acquis.

Le DELF A2 valide la compétence langagière d’un utilisateur élémentaire.

Le DELF B2 valide une maitrise en langue qui permet de faire preuve d’aisance dans le discours social et atteste la capacité de corriger ses erreurs.


Focus sur l’IGCSE

The International General Certificate of Secondary Education (International GCSE) is taken in over 100 countries worldwide and is internationally recognised as being equivalent to the GCSE in the United Kingdom.

Grading is on an eight-point scale (A*–G) and grades A to E are equivalent to O level grades A to E. In some countries, International GCSE qualifications will satisfy the language entry requirements for university. In others, they are widely used as a preparation for A Level, AS, International Baccalaureate, European Baccalaureate and US Advanced Placement courses.

Grade C in International GCSE English (both First Language and Second Language) satisfies the English proficiency requirements of many universities in the UK and other Anglophone countries. The syllabuses of classes S4 and S5 (European teaching) will allow students the opportunity to sit International GCSEs in a number of subjects at the end of S5 (French seconde) if they wish. These will be examined by Edexcel and are an internationally recognised qualification (compulsory in the UK at age 16). This also gives students an indication of their capabilities as there are no other external examinations in the European Schooling system before the European Baccalaureate in the seventh year of High School. These are optional exams and each subject costs around 50 Euro plus an administration fee (30-50 euros).

Subjects available at the International School for students in S5 :
1. Mathematics*

2. English Language*

3. English Literature

4. Physics*

5. Chemistry*

6. Biology*

7. French

8. Art

9. Information Technology

10. Spanish


Students who are following the International teaching syllabuses have the opportunity to take the International GCSEs in subjects they study in English (History, Geography, English language, English Literature and Mathematics) and to sit the IGCSE French at the end of seconde. *Not all of the Mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology syllabi will have been covered in lessons due to the differences between IGCSE Syllabi and the OIB and European programmes. Students may enrol in their own names on the understanding that they will take responsibility for the remaining parts of the syllabus. Extra support lessons will be provided in mathematics.

For more specific details about the International GCSEs, please see the Edexcel website:

Enrolment forms for the summer 2013 exam session will be available from January 2013. It is essential that subject teachers be consulted on the advisability of entries.
