The Middle School
Vishwashanti Gurukul is a continuum school offering three IB Programmes from PYP to DP.
At the Middle School we offer –
1) IB MYP - MYP1 to MYP 5 (Gr 6 to Gr 10)
2) IGCSE - Gr. 9 and Gr. 10
Hence after completion of MYP 3-Gr 8, students are offered a choice to continue with IB MYP or take up IGCSE
Vishwashanti Gurukul offers these two programmes due following considerations –
Global popularity of both programmes
Programme specific teaching learning practices
Variation in assessment pattern
Impact on further studies and different career options

In the UK, Cambridge IGCSE is accepted as equivalent to the GCSE. A good grade (grade C or above) in Cambridge IGCSE English as a Second Language is accepted for entry by a number of universities in the UK as evidence of competence in the English language.
