Students prepare for their IGCSE examinations in Years 9 to 11. IGCSE is the world’s most popular international qualification and widely recognised by leading universities worldwide. At Mount Kelly Hong Kong, students learn to be independent, passionate, responsible and confident in their preparation for their examinations as well as later on in life.

Our IGCSE programme offers a wide variety of subjects and multiple pathways for our students, catering to different English language proficiency levels. The programme is taught in a small class setting and has a high level of personalisation, thereby ensuring all students receive the needed attention in order to thrive in their examinations.


Our Year 9 pre-IGCSE programme is optional for those students who wish to start preparing earlier for their IGCSE. Students can begin studying some of their core subjects, but not yet in the elective subjects.


In Years 10 and 11, students take part in preparation for the examinations.


All students must take one English language (first or second language) and one Chinese (Mandarin) language subject (first, second or foreign language). Additionally, all students need to take Mathematics and Science Co-ordinated. Together, these comprise the core subjects.
