UKAP O Level curriculum



UKAP O Level is an internationally recognised qualification equivalent to UKAP IGCSE and UK GCSE. UKAP O Level provides learners with excellent preparation for academic progression to UKAP Advanced as well as other progression routes.

We designed UKAP O Level for an international audience. It is sensitive to the needs of different countries and for learners whose first language may not be English. This is acknowledged during the assessment process.

In some countries, schools use UKAP O Level as an international alternative or addition to the local government’s examination.

A broad curriculum

The UKAP O Level curriculum enables teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant wherever you teach it. You can choose from more than 40 subjects in any combination.

The UKAP O Level curriculum emphasises broad and balanced study across a wide range of subjects. It develops learners’ skills in creative thinking, enquiry and problem solving and is structured so they build practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

UKAP O Levels develop learner knowledge, understanding and skills in:

• Subject content
• Applying knowledge and understanding to familiar and new situations
• Intellectual enquiry
• Flexibility and responsiveness to change
• Working and communicating in English
• Influencing outcomes
• Cultural awareness.

UKAP O Level is compatible with other curricula. We update the curriculum regularly to ensure it stays relevant to learners’ needs.
