IGCSE Programme

Students at Mount Kelly Hong Kong prepare for their International Certificate for Secondary Education (IGCSE) examinations in Years 9 to 11. Cambridge IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification and widely recognised by leading universities worldwide. At Mount Kelly Hong Kong, pupils learn to be independent, passionate, responsible and confident in their preparation for their examinations as well as later on in life.

Our IGCSE programme offers a wide variety of subjects and multiple pathways for our students, catering to different English language proficiency levels. The programme is taught in a small class setting and has a high level of personalisation, thereby ensuring all children receive the needed attention in order to thrive in their examinations.


Our Year 9 pre-IGCSE programme is optional for those who wish to start preparing earlier for their IGCSE. Students can begin studying some of their core subjects, but not yet in the elective ones.


In Years 10 and 11, pupils take part in preparation for the IGCSE exams.
