Year 10 and 11

In Year 10 and 11 students work towards GCSEs and IGCSEs. GCSEs are the courses offered by all exam boards while IGCSEs (International GCSEs) are offered in a smaller number of subjects by some exam boards and are widely taught by leading schools. Academically more rigorous than their GCSE counterparts, these examinations require students to study, understand and think more deeply.

Each department chooses the best course in their subject: IGCSE in Maths, Science, English and English Literature, Geography, History and GCSE in all others. IGCSEs are examined through a mixture of written exams and (in a small number of subjects) coursework. All exams are taken at the end of Year 11 except Maths for Set 1, and a small number of language GCSEs for native speakers.

For pupils, grades matter more than the number of subjects, with the vast majority of Le Regent College students will sit papers at Higher Tier.

Most pupils take nine or ten GCSEs:

  • English (IGCSE in English Language and IGCSE in English Literature)
  • Mathematics
  • Sciences (all pupils study Biology, Chemistry and Physics, with the subjects taught and examined separately. The final result is presented as two IGCSE grades known as Double Award Science). A triple Award could also be achieved.
  • A modern foreign language or English as an Additional Language.
  • History
  • Geography
  • One of the following two: Art and Drama

The following modern languages are also available: Mandarin, German, Spanish and Italian. Other foreign language such as Russian and Japanese could also be offered.  All of these languages will only be taught as a time-tabled class with a minimum of four students. Otherwise, the courses will have to be charged separately.
