Pupils in the British Section take three external examinations. The Brevet is taken in 3ème, at the end of the collège cycle. It is the traditional French school leaving certificate and is a loose equivalent to British GCSEs. At the end of 2nde, pupils take IGCSEs, an international version of GCSEs. The final exam at the end of Terminale is the OIB, an international version of the French Baccalaureate. This is a unique qualification because pupils are examined in both French and English.
The British Section is proud of its pupils for their consistently excellent attainment in all of these public examinations.
