Studying A Levels in 21st century not only imparts subject based knowledge, but also helps develop many skills that are vital for students in their undergraduate study and successful careers anywhere around the world. This internationally recognised qualification is split in two years where the students give exams in two sessions: the first half of the A-level year known as AS Level whereas the second half is known as A2-Level subsequently. The final result offers the grade that represents the combined result of both years.

These include in the form of regular lectures, assessments, resource materials, exam techniques of A levels question attempting and many a times, one-to-one study sessions in case of extra academic support. The seasoned and well-experienced teachers not only have subject specific training certificates in teaching A Levels, but also have experience of decades of teaching and producing exceptional results; including world distinctions by the citizens of The City School. Furthermore, the faculty and administration work together to ensure maximum learning of the students by regularly monitoring their attendance, class performance and academic assessments throughout the year.

Moving to a new school is never easy especially for someone who has never really changed schools before. I, Yanzar Sarim, am a part of the City School E-11 Campus which I joined in August 2019. I will be honest; the experience here is definitely a lot better than I expected. In my opinion, one of the things that really make an experience good or bad is the people it involves and honestly the people at the school, including the teachers are truly inspiring, helpful, kind and creative. There is a thing known as the chaos theory, it’s about how something tiny in a huge system can affect the whole system. Here at The City School, there are loads of miniscule things which surely make it a better place.
I did my O and A levels from Rawal campus. During this time, there were a variety of episodes ranging from interesting sessions of political discussion to plain old chemistry. The overall experience has thus, been very enjoyable with the co-curricular activities surely complimenting the academics. These days will be missed.
Having a long history with The City School, I consider this school one of the best educational institutions one can enroll in. With the very warm atmosphere, this school has provided me with everything I needed, in order to showcase my talents. My communication and leadership skills made headway, carving me into a more refined and competitive person overall. While being here at Ravi, the guidance of my mentors, readily available to assist me, proved to be fruitful as I was able to achieve 10A*s/As in my O Level. Career Counselor worked tirelessly to pave my way into top notch universities. I can say, without doubt, that this school has groomed me into a person who has overcome her fears and is ready to accomplish her dreams in spite of everything .
