Advanced Levels

Prime School offers a flexible curriculum with continuous assessment for 16 to 18 year-olds

The AICE Diploma (Advanced International Certificate of Education) is a two-year, pre-university certificate for secondary students, designed and administered by the University of Cambridge in England; and examined by an International Body of Curriculum and Assessment. The AICE Diploma itself is designed to be a two-year program made up of AS or A-Level courses. AS or A-Level exams are currently being offered in over 100 countries.
Each year, our students, upon completing the Advanced level, acquire the mandatory skills and knowledge of the Cambridge University curriculum.
The qualifications guaranteed by Cambridge University give access to the most prestigious universities in the world, such as Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and Yale.
In Portugal, students obtain the equivalence required by Portuguese universities through “Portaria 779/98”.

LEARNER PROFILE

The school aims to develop internationally minded people who commonly share a concern for the planet’s guardianship, and help create a better and more peaceful world.

AICE DIPLOMA

For students looking for a more challenging high school experience or for a chance to earn college credit, many high schools offer several advanced college-level program options. The newest one of these is the Cambridge AICE, an international diploma program created through Cambridge University in England. 

A-LEVEL

The A-Level curriculum engages students in a small number of subjects and develops in-depth knowledge. The A-Level is also the traditional preparation for entry to world-renowned British universities and is also recognized by universities globally.

A-levels are widely regarded as the ‘Gold Standard’ qualification for top universities in Britain, and the rest of the world. This prestigious course is internationally acknowledged as evidence of the most demanding and rigorous intellectual training.
