Certification of English Proficiency
Besides the degrees required by British universities in specific GCE courses, the universities also require certification of proficiency in the English language. The following certificates are accredited: Certificate IGCSE in English (Grade C and above) or the IELTS Certificate with a grade of at least 6.5.
Some universities and colleges may require a candidate to pass an additional Admissions Test. This applies for admission to universities such as Oxford and Cambridge but exists for several fields of study even in other universities. The University Placement Center of our School provides support for either option.
Studies in the US – Preparation for the SAT
If you are a student in Sr. High School (Lyceum), or in the International Baccalaureate programme and you wish to attend a university in America, the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) is a prerequisite. At Doukas School, we prepare students for the SAT through a specially designed programme that ensures high performance. The programme includes preparation for both parts of the SAT (English and Mathematics). Our students have an additional advantage in that they can take the exam in a familiar environment.
