From age 16 to 18, the focus is to prepare students for university studies. The curriculum follows A Level courses in the British curriculum and Pruebas de Competencia Específica (PCE) courses in the Spanish curriculum.
In Key Stage 5, students select which subjects to study according to their interest, performance in IGCSE and the path the individual student is considering studying at university.
At the International English School of Castellón, we offer the following A Level subjects:
Students normally study for 3 A Level courses as well as studying Spanish Language.
Students continue with these 3 subjects to complete the A Level course.
Students who wish to study at Spanish universities follow subjects in one of the three strands we offer: Health Sciences (Ciencias de Salud), Technological Sciences (Física y Mecánica) and Economics (Ciencias Sociales y Empresariales). These strands are taught in Spanish by our experienced bachillerato teachers.
Students take AS Level exams in 3 subjects and A Level in Spanish Language.
Students complete the full A Level in 3 subjects.
Students take exams in two or three subjects in the strands mentioned above for specific preparation for entry into Spanish universities. Pruebas de Competencia Específica (PCE) exams are taken at the UNED centre in Villareal.
By following the British curriculum and successfully completing A levels our students are very well prepared for future study at university. Our students go to university in Spain, the UK and other countries including Denmark, Holland and USA.
