Internationally recognised tests

Internationella Engelska Skolan is a registered associate of Cambridge Assessment International Education, meaning IES students can choose to take extra examinations they provide, IGCSEs (International General Certificate of Secondary Education).


These exams are valued throughout the world and based on learning materi­als from Cambridge, which provide goals over and above the Swedish system.

Cambridge set out that assessment has two important roles:

  • to prove what a student has learnt
  • to improve a student’s understanding and skills.

Cambridge exams are designed to be fair, valid, reliable and practicable, so that every Cambridge exam provides a true picture of a student’s ability, wherever and whenever the exam was taken.
