We provide an IGCSE curriculum for our G10 students. On the premise of taking into account university application requirements and students' wishes and abilities, each of our students will study six courses. The compulsory subjects are Mathematics, English, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Chinese, and students can choose from Art, Information Technology and Additional Mathematics as their sixth subject. As students improve their English and learn more about English test styles, we will significantly increase the number of optional subjects available.


Our A-Level courses are for G11 and G12 students who obtained the required IGCSE results (at least 5 IGCSE passes at grade B and above). Students choose three subjects from: Maths or Additional Maths, Chemistry, Physics, ICT, Economics, and Art. All of the students will be required to follow the English course (IELTS) which is a necessary qualification needed to enter overseas universities. Our courses will enable our students to apply for entry to the world’s top universities to follow whichever course they wish to follow. As the school grows, we will be able to offer additional subjects at A-Level, for example, Biology, Geography and History. 

Shanghai Concord has a rigorous academic monitoring and evaluation system, which regularly test students’ academic performance. Most Saturdays from 9-11 am, the high school students take subject specific tests to encourage the review of learning and give them a chance to attempt exam questions under timed conditions. This also gives teachers a clear indication of progress made and whether there are any areas of concern. Results are recorded and published in the following week.
