Examinations and Transition


Examinations

As an International School we are exempt from the Danish national examinations.  We do however offer the final examination for students studying Danish at the end of Year 10/11.  We follow the guidelines set out in the Ministry of Education’s “Fælles Mål” for Danish. The final exam at the end of Secondary is “Folkeskolens Afgangsprøve for 9. klasse”.

All other examinations are externally assessed by Cambridge in years 10 and 11 following the IGCSE curriculum thereby allowing students to achieve the International General Certificate of Secondary Education.
