Grading System and Attendance 

The grading scale at The Lyceum is stringent. High standards are set to encourage the students to strive in their studies, and a regular class attendance is required.  In order to remain enrolled in a course, a student must maintain a minimum D average.

Courses must be dropped by by specific dates in order not to be counted for grading.

 

Academic Calendar

Students take the AS Level examinations most subjects after the first year of study, and the A Level examinations after the second year.  A Level Art and Further Mathematics and AS Level English General and Global Perspectives and Research are taken following the second year of study.  Further Mathematics does not offer an AS Level examination and the AS Level exam in Art may be taken after the first year only with special permission. 
 
Each year of the two-year programme is divided into two marking and two examination periods.
