Most of our students took 10 or 11 IGCSE subjects which totalled up to roughly 2000 grades of which: 
 
64% are A*/A vs 60% which is the international benchmark of excellence
84% are A*-B
94% are A*-C
 
This means that 94% of all the grades achieved by our students are credits or better. 
 
Cambridge ICE 
 
Cambridge International Certificate in Education (ICE) exposes students to a broad and balanced curriculum and enables them to demonstrate competence in a wide range of subjects. Students are required to take subjects from five curriculum areas:
 
2 from Languages 
1 from Humanities 
1 from Sciences
1 from Mathematics
1 from Creative & Vocational 
 
All SKIS students who were eligible have passed the ICE. Nevertheless, the level of overall excellence in the school is shown by the fact that 74% of students scored distinctions and 23% have achieved merits.
