About the Webinar

With so many options for International Curriculums and their corresponding subjects, it can sometimes be overwhelming to decide which one works best for you or your child. This webinar is aimed at providing you all the relevant information needed to do the best fit analysis and eventually decide which path is the most suitable for your journey. 

We will be exploring three popular curriculums namely, the International Baccalaureate (MYP & IBDP), British (I/GCSE & A Levels), and American (High School Diploma & AP) boards as they are offered globally and have the largest student base. More specifically, our focus will be on high schooling, as these years are the most defining for a student whilst deciding which careers/programs they would like to opt for at an undergraduate level. We look at educating you on grading systems, assessments, subject choices, and levels along with extracurricular facets of each curriculum.

We will also look at how to construct a strong student profile for undergraduate college applications and understand the relevance of high schooling choices for locations like the USA, Canada, UK, Europe, and Australia amongst others. 

The Webinar will also touch upon another domain, Homeschooling, which is gaining popularity but is mired in a lack of information and pre-defined notions. We intend to explain how it works, its recognition, options available, and how it can impact your college application. 

You will also get a chance to interact with Mohnish Ahuja, an industry expert who has spent the last 10 years coaching and mentoring students from British, IB, and American Curricula. With expertise in International Curricula like A-Levels, I/GCSE, IBDP, and MYP for Math, Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology), Economics, Business Studies, and Accounting, the webinar will also give you a peek into how Ignite supports and prepares its students to secure top grades.

A level vs IB Curriculum.

In A levels students can select up to 4 subjects with an option to drop 3 subjects in year 13, However, in IB, Students ave to select 6 Subjects with English, mathematics, science, and Humanities as a mandatory subject.
IB conducts 1 sitting exam for all subjects at the end of year 13, However for A levels, module exams are conducted at the end of year 12, and students can rewrite the exam during the 13th year.
In A levels, students have an option to drop 1 subject after year 12, however, for IB students, they have to complete all 6 courses for earning a degree.
With the above, both A levels and IB curriculum are internationally recognized and are accepted by top-ranking universities and colleges.

More Similarities & Differences about A levels, IB and American.

Sixth form, commonly called A-Levels, are the most critical years for high school students as it is the first step in deep learning of subjects that you will pursue in university and likely progress into careers as well. While applying to colleges worldwide, the grades you achieve in AS & A Levels will always hold the most precedent for admissions officers in evaluating a student's academic abilities.
This Webinar is planned for students who have cleared grade 10 (or Year 11) from any curriculum (IGCSE/ICSE/CBSE or MYP) and are progressing into A-Levels in September 2020. We aim to equip students with the information needed to pick correct subjects for their further studies, create and execute study plans, and make effective use of the Pre A-Levels Summer Break. We will also spend time discussing how students can opt for additional subjects to enhance their profiles and keep multiple career paths open while applying to universities. 

With many different boards offering AS & A Level subjects like Pearson Edexcel, Cambridge Assessments (CAIE), AQA and OCR, students and parents will gain a better understanding of the different syllabuses, specifications & grading systems available. Students who opt to take their entire A-Levels or some subjects as a Private Candidate can learn more about the options and routes most suitable to them. 
In this Webinar, you will get a chance to interact with an industry expert, who has spent the last 10 years coaching students from British & IB Curricula. The Webinar will also give you a peek into how Ignite prepares its students to secure top grades in A Levels. We shall share more information about our Summer Break and Annual Learning Programs that have been successfully supporting students in STEM subjects for the last 6 years.
