OVERVIEW

Targeted for learners aged 16 & 17 years old, Zenith offers the Malaysian National Curriculum (KSSM) as its core programme. The curriculum is blended with components of UK syllabus mainly in English, Mathematics and Science related subjects. As an Elite Science School, we are only offering the Science stream option. Students who complete their Senior 5 will be prepared for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) and may qualified Zenith students may choose to attempt the International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE, U.K.).

SPM & IGCSE (UK) Examinations

In addition to students sitting for their Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examination at the end of their Secondary 5, qualified Zenith students are encouraged to sit for the IGCSE (UK) examinations as an additional qualification for them to embark on tertiary education. It is one of the world’s most accepted international qualification for end of secondary school, before one proceeds to their Pre University / Tertiary studies. Many universities worldwide require a combination of Pre University and IGCSE qualifications to meet their entry requirements.
