Cambridge Assessment International Education
The University of Cambridge formed the ’Local Examination Syndicate’ over 160 years ago.
Its aim was to raise standards in education by administering exams for people who were not
members of the University and inspecting schools. For the first time in 1858, 370 school candidates
in 7 English cities sat4 exams set by the University of Cambridge. Today this has risen to more
than 8 million candidates in 160 countries. The Syndicate began examining internationally in 1864,
and this aspect of its work grew quickly. The Syndicate adopted the brand name that we are familiar
with ‘Cambridge Assessment’ in 2005.
Cambridge University Press and Assessment provides world-leading academic research,
learning and assessment globally, backed by the fist-class teaching and research departments of
the University of Cambridge.
TBS is proud to be an Accredited Cambridge School offering Cambridge qualifications and being part
of a global community working to prepare students for success in our changing world.
From the academic year 2022-23 we will be preparing students for Cambridge IGCSE examinations.
Pearson Edexcel –
Pearson Edexcel is a British multinational education and examination body formed in 1996 and
wholly-owned by Pearson PLC since 2005. It is the only privately owned examination board in the UK.
However, their story begins in 1836 when a royal charter gave the University of London limited powers
to conduct exams and award degrees to its students and the establishing of the University of London
Extension Board in 1902 with the first school examinations following three years later. In later years
this board now called the London Examinations merged with the Business
and Technology Education
Council to form Edexcel which administered GCSEs and A Levels. Since this merger in 1986, Pearson
have bought Edexcel, opened Pearson College in London and Manchester and become the world’s
leading learning company offering a range of academic and vocational qualifications.
TBS is proud to be an accredited centre for Pearson Edexcel IGCSE and A Level qualification.
This accreditation enables us to offer a range of A Level course through Pearsons Edexcel.
