If you look at Top 10 boarding schools in Mumbai while trying to decide which one is best for your child, you may find it a bit overwhelming. These educational institutions offer a wide range of qualifications. Every single one of those schools claims that their qualification is the golden ticket into the future for your child. How do you make a choice?

At Prudence Intenational, we are a bit old-fashioned. Our teaching reflects the most recent innovations and ideas in educational theory and practice. But when it comes to the exact qualifications, we like to be on the safe side and go by what's been around and proven to be successful for years. This is why we've never failed to prepare our young people for an exceptional academic career in every part of the world.

As the authors of Cambridge IGCSE explain, "IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification for 14 to 16 year olds. It is recognised by leading universities and employers worldwide, and is an international passport to progression and success. Developed over 25 years ago, it is tried, tested and trusted by schools worldwide." (see cambridgeinternational.org for more details)

As has been pointed in one of our earlier blog posts, cross-curricular links is one of the most important features of a successful education system, and it is one of the strengths of IGCSE. Young people aren't just being fed a random selection of facts and figures that don't help them to make sense of the world. IGCSE is all about developing links and making connection so that students are able to apply knowledge and understanding to new and unfamiliar situations.

IGCSE are rich in subject content that engages and motivates young minds. But it's more than just a collection of interesting facts and information. First and foremost, IGCSE is about developing children's creativity and problem solving skills. They may not have/know some information, but they will be able to find a solution in any and every situation by using their research, critical and analytical skills.

IGCSE also recognise the importance of offering students and their teachers a flexible curriculum that is both international and local in its outlook. It can be adapted to suit the unique needs of our learners here at Prudence International. IGCSE promote cultural awareness and intellectual curiosity. It prepares young people to working in an ever-changing environment where adaptability is one of the most valuable employment skills.

Once again, not every school in or near Navi Mumbai is equally strong when it comes to catering for the needs of individual children. Here at Prudence International, IGCSE enable us to do just that. Cambridge IGCSE assessment can include written, oral, coursework and practical assessment. This means that our young people are best placed to demonstrate their learning and progress in a way that works for them. Some students will also benefit from choosing between core and extended IGCSE curricula to reflect their unique interests, gifts and abilities.
