The school’s affiliation with Cambridge University dates back to the early 1990s, when PISOD registered with Cambridge International Examinations (CIE), which resulted in the school offering Cambridge IGCSE, AS, and A-level qualifications. In line with CIE, the school runs two Cambridge examination sessions a year, in May/June and October/November.
Two Cambridge examination sessions were later added, namely the primary Checkpoint test (for Grade 5) and the secondary Checkpoint test(for Grade 8). At the end of each exam series, candidates are awarded their respective certificates by Cambridge.
