MES is a Cambridge International Examinations Centre and follows the Cambridge curriculum at both primary and secondary level. Each student’s performance is assessed by end of term tests internally and by Cambridge Checkpoint Assessment at the end of Year 6 and the end of Year 9 as external assessment. In Year 10, students begin a two year course of study leading to International General Certificate of Secondary Examination (IGCSE) assessment at the end of Year 11.
Students who obtain IGCSE qualifications are well prepared for further academic studies in Malaysia or internationally. They may progress to study AS and A Level or the International Baccalaureate Diploma leading to higher education at university. They are also equipped with the skills needed for immediate employment.
