More than 10,000 New Zealand students sit Cambridge exams every year. They all study core academic subjects such as maths, English, sciences, economics, history and modern foreign languages, but increasing numbers also take advantage of a wide range of innovative curriculum choices. This year, New Zealand students gained top scores among their peers from Cambridge schools worldwide in subjects that included Environmental Management, Marine Science, Media Studies, and Thinking Skills. Four students achieved ‘Top in the World’ awards in Cambridge’s ground-breaking Global Perspectives course that stretches across traditional subject boundaries and develops transferable skills.
Following the huge success of Cambridge IGCSE and International A & AS Level Global Perspectives, this subject will also become available to students in the lower school years - Cambridge Primary and Cambridge Secondary 1. Cambridge began piloting these courses last year in 37 schools around the world.
From 2018, New Zealand students will be able to gain a Cambridge International AS& A Level qualification in Digital Media & Design. This new subject complements the more than 55 subjects they can already choose from.
