Ajman Academy has been teaching OxfordAQA qualifications since 2017. OxfordAQA – the abbreviated name for Oxford International AQA Examinations – is a partnership between Oxford University Press, a department of the University of Oxford, and AQA, the UK’s largest provider of GCSEs and A-levels. The qualifications are specially designed to suit the needs of students studying in international schools, whilst being aligned to the standard of the reformed GCSEs and A-levels that students now take in England.
The reformed UK GCSEs, in particular are now more demanding, with a new Grade 9 to differentiate students at the very top of the ability range. OxfordAQA’s International GCSEs are benchmarked to this new ‘gold standard’, which means that the achievement of Ramzi Al-Sharawi is all the more remarkable.Founded in 2012 Ajman Academy offers a wide range of IGCSE and AS/A level subjects. In Grades 11 and 12, we offer globally recognised, ‘gold standard’ British Curriculum A levels across a range of subjects, including English, Maths, Sciences, Computing, Business and the Arts.
Personalised and specialist student counselling is available to all students to ensure that students and parents can make the most informed choices of subject.
