Qualifications at O Castro British International School
The English National Curriculum’s IGCSE and A-Level academic qualifications are internationally respected qualifications that are widely accepted as entry requirements to the most prestigious universities worldwide. At O Castro we are committed to helping all of our students achieve academic excellence, supporting them at every stage of their educational journey.
IGCSE and A-Level
The IGCSE and A-Level qualifications are highly respected and recognised around the world. These examination courses provide our students with access to the most prestigious universities in the world.
Access to British Universities
For access to British universities, at least two A-Level passes are normally required, although for more prestigious UK universities, at least three A-Level subjects at grade B or above are necessary. Students make their university application via UCAS (Universities and Colleges Admission Service) and the school provides help and guidance for our senior students throughout this process.
Access to Spanish Universities
Access to public or private Spanish universities with A-Level qualifications is guaranteed under the same conditions as Spanish students applying from Spanish schools. The validation process for our students is carried out via UNED (Universidad de Educación a Distancia) and is known as Direct Access. For more information please take a look at our FAQ section.
Access to International Universities
University access is not limited to Spain and the United Kingdom. A-Level qualifications enable our students to apply to universities throughout Europe, the United States, Canada and the rest of the world.
