Message from O Level Coordinator
TIS Senior Section strives to maintain a perfect balance between a Shariah Compliant Curriculum and an extracurricular programme. The aim of the senior section is to prepare our students for A’ Levels, university, and beyond.
Hence, our Senior School follows the CAIE Syllabi.
During a three-year period in the senior section, our students are highly focused upon securing their best achievements in academics and otherwise, to enable them to be successful in gaining admission to their desired universities and excel in their preferred field of interest.
In Grade IX, students are introduced to O’ Levels with a variety of new subjects including Physics, Chemistry and Biology, bringing their total subject tally to 12. While this may seem daunting at first, the diversity of subjects is an integral part of the O’ Levels experience, giving students an opportunity to explore their academic interests, before they make the pivotal decision at the end of the year.
Before starting Grade IX, students select their O’ Level subjects for the next two years. In addition to compulsory subjects, students must choose between major subject groups such as Pre-Medical, Pre-Engineering and Business.
Students must also select two electives for a wide variety of subjects to further explore their academic interests. The subject list and possible combinations can be seen below.

The spirit of friendly competition comes alive on Senior Section Sports Day. The children participate in a wide range of sports activities. They cheer for their teammates and learn remarkable lessons about sportsmanship. We make sure that each and every child is fully participating as we want them to develop discipline, abide by rules, fair play and respect for others.
Students get the opportunity to compete in various inter-school qirat competitions. (Reflections Qirat Competition, Hira Foundation Qirat Competition, etc.) The main deciding factors are memorization skills, Tajweed and confidence.
