Aga Khan University Examination Board (AKU-EB) Section
IBA Public School Sukkur introduced AKUEB system in the school in August, 2014. AKUEB is based on three aspects:
Practical assessment, Reading assessment, writing assessment and listening assessment are the main components of AKUEB.
To maintain the highest level of integrity and transparency during the assessment and result processes, AKU-EB uses a seeding process and exclusive e-marking software. These processes not only maintain the anonymity of students to the e-markers, but also preserve the maximum level of transparency which empowers students to achieve what they truly deserve.
If students are not satisfied with their results, there is a facility of rechecking of papers provided to the students in AKUEB. Learning Support Materials are supplementary services offered by AKU-EB to assist students. These resources include past papers for all subjects, anthologies for Urdu Compulsory, Urdu Asaan and English Literature subjects, a guide for SSC I English Compulsory, resource lists and concept maps for ten subjects, and a command words guide. AKU-EB qualifications are based on the national curriculum, with a focus on modern perspectives of teaching and learning. AKU-EB teachers participate in a wide variety of professional development opportunities to constantly update their knowledge and share their expertise AKU-EB qualifications are aimed at promoting active learning process with a focus on investigation and application of knowledge. AKU-EB works closely with selected publishers to offer appropriate text books and learning material for students.

Cambridge International Examinations (CAIE)
Cambridge qualifications are globally recognized as the gold standard in academic achievement, and we are proud to offer these prestigious qualifications to our students. Our dedicated team of experienced teachers and staff provide a supportive and stimulating learning environment to help students achieve their full potential. Our experienced teachers use a variety of teaching methods and resources to engage students and foster a love of learning.
The O and A level qualifications are designed to develop critical thinking, problem-solving and analytical skills, providing a strong foundation for further academic study and future careers. Students have the opportunity to choose from a wide range of subjects, including subjects such as Mathematics, English, Urdu, Islamiat, Pakistan studies, Biology, Computer science, Physics and chemistry. It's a 3-year program. In first year ( O Level-1), Students are assessed internally by the school for all 8 subjects whereas they appear in Annual Cambridge Exams that are held twice a year, in May/June and October/ November, in 3 minor subjects at the end of 2nd year (O level -2) and finally complete their Cambridge assessment cycle in third year (O level- 3) by appearing in 5 remaining major subjects.
Students who are between the ages of 16 to 19 can apply for A Level, after completing their O level/matriculation from local boards. A-levels is a two-year education program equivalent to HSSC.
Students at IBAPSS, get an opportunity to complete this qualification through a staged assessment route. This means students who would typically complete the A Level in two years, register for the Cambridge International AS Level in one examination series and complete the final Cambridge International A Level at a subsequent series the next year. This allows students to follow a more organized and evenly spread option for the examination process.
Our students have a track record of outstanding results in the Cambridge O and A level examinations, with many going on to study at top universities around the country. We are committed to helping our students achieve their academic goals and providing them with the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their future careers.
we offer a supportive learning environment that encourages students to take risks and push themselves to achieve their full potential. This includes regular assessments twice a term and mock exams, individualized feedback from teachers, Blended learning using digital classrooms including Google classroom and other LMS with access to bulk of authentic CAIE authenticated online resources. Our teachers not only attend regular professional development trainings from Cambridge, but also attend and organize in-house PD sessions for continuous professional development and capacity building. They are dedicated to helping students succeed and provide individualized attention to ensure that every student receives the support they need to excel academically.
In addition to our academic programs, we also offer a range of extracurricular activities including Project based learning to help students develop their interests and talents outside of the classroom. whether it's sports, music, drama, or community service, our students have many opportunities to get involved and make a difference.
