There are two important sets of examinations during the EC3 school year:

  1. External IGCSE examination resits in January 
  2. External end-of-year Pearson AS-level examinations in various subjects in April, May and June 

The results of these examinations determine promotion to EC4.

Regular classes do not all take place as usual during these examination periods. Students and parents will be provided with a detailed timetable for each of the periods in advance.

External examinations

Pearson Edexcel
AS-level (advanced subsidiary level) examinations

The AS-level examinations represent the first half of a complete A level.

All EC3 students prepare for AS-level examinations, which take place in April, May and June. The dates and times of the examinations will be posted here once they have been announced by Pearson. 

Registration for all examinations

Hull’s School will automatically register students for examinations in the subjects of the classes in which they are enrolled. 

EC3 students who wish to resit an IGCSE examination they wrote in EC2 will need to register themselves using the form provided them by their Year Head.

Students will receive a detailed personal timetable about one month in advance, which will include the dates, starting times and venues for each examination. They will also receive an invoice for the fees, which must be paid prior to sitting the first examination.

Examination fees

Please note that the examination fees are not included in the yearly school fee or in the miscellaneous costs.

I enjoyed and value the college at Hull's school for its profound education and the incomparable location in the heart of Zurich.
