Pupils in Years 9 and 10 at the International School Braunschweig-Wolfsburg follow the Cambridge IGCSE (International Certificate of Secondary Education) curriculum and take the IGCSE examinations at the end of Year 10.
The International school currently offers the IGCSE in the following subjects: German, English, Spanish, Biology, Geography and Mathematics.
If completed successfully, (i.e. with grade "C" or higher) the IGCSE certificate is equivalent to the Erweiterter Sekundarstufe I Abschluss.
The IGCSE curriculum prepares pupils for the IB Diploma Programme in Years 11 and 12.

In Years 11 and 12 the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme is offered.
It is an academically challenging programme of education with final examinations
that prepares students for success at university and life beyond. The rigorous
programme is especially designed for highly motivated students in the last two years of their secondary education. An IB Diploma is accepted at universities world-wide and is equivalent to the German certification 'Hochschulzugangsqualifikation' .
Admission qualifications for German universities are regulated by standards set by
the Standing Conference of Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs. The IB examinations at the end of Year 12 are set and evaluated externally by the IB Board of Examinations.
