Introducing the Fazlehaq College Lower Secondary Programme is a framework for educational success for students between 11-14 years old


It provides a natural progression for children from primary education, develops children’s knowledge and skills in all core and non core subjects, especially Mathematics, English and Science.

The Lower Secondary Programme also offers means of tracking students’ progress form 11-14 years with an integrated package of teaching, learning and assessment materials. At the end of Lower Secondary Program students can sit for the Cambridge Checkpoint tests which provide detailed feedback on students’ strengths and weaknesses before they progress to post 14 qualifications such as International O, Level or local Matric system.

The Lower Secondary Programme gives detailed, structured reports to parents on their child’s progress and measure standards over time. All the tests are standardised, set and marked by FCM and enable teachers to advise students and parents of the suitability of different progression routes after 14. The progression tests and analysis provide detailed feedback on students’ strengths and weaknesses in the core and non core subjects at the end of each stage. Heads of the Schools can use this feedback to improve teaching, support learning and report students’ progress to parents.

The Lower Secondary Programme links with the Fazlehaq College Primary Programme. It provides standardised tests to help teachers and parents to monitor students’ progress from primary to lower secondary phases. It also provides excellent preparation for students in marking on O, level courses.

(O, level/ SSC)

Matric is the local examination certificate course named as Secondary School Certificate of 10 years schooling. The College is affiliated with the Board of Intermediate and Secondary Education, Mardan. On the other hand, GCE, O level is an international examination certificate course named as General Certificate of Examination, Ordinary level (O, level) conducted by Cambridge International Examination University of UK.

O, level is designed for 14 to 16 years age and aims to prepare students for academic progression (such as A an AS Level study) and equip them with the skills necessary for employment. They are established qualifications that keep pace with educational developments and trends. International O Levels are recognised throughout the world by academic institutes and employers as a mark of quality and evidence of real ability.

The International O, Level curriculum places emphasis on broad and balanced study with subjects drawn from areas covering Languages, Humanities, Social Sciences, Mathematics, Creative, Technical and Vocational subjects. Learning the curriculum is structured so that students attain both practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

International O, Levels are suitable for virtually all students and to take account of different abilities there is a choice between (compulsory) Core and extended curriculum (optional) papers in most subjects. These have been specially designed for an international market and are sensitive to the needs for different countries. These qualifications are designed for students whose first language may not be English and this is acknowledged throughout the examination process. The curriculum also allows teaching to be placed in a localised context, making it relevant in varying regions.
