Our Curriculum

At Dowen College Lagos we run both the Nigerian and British curricula, culminating in the Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) organized by NECO and the Checkpoint in Year 9 (JS3); and the WASSCE and IGCSE in Year 12

exam

The Curriculum consists of a wide range of learning experiences which gives a balanced grounding in all main subjects. Highly qualified and experienced teachers guide the students in learning, aided by well- equipped laboratories and teaching aids to make teaching and learning interesting in all subject areas.

The tutorial system further consolidates learning. Students are prepared for NECO Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE) which replaces the JSCE, Check point (Key Stage 3 Examination by Cambridge Assessment International Education) the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), International General Certificate of Secondary Education (I.G.C.S.E) , Scholastics Aptitude Tests (SAT), TOEFL and IELTS.

PLEASE NOTE THAT STUDENTS ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SIT FOR ANY EXTERNAL EXAMINATIONS EXCEPT THOSE THE SCHOOL OFFICIALLY REGISTERS THEM FOR.

A homework timetable is prepared along with the teaching timetable and given to each student. Not submitting your homework is frowned upon and interpreted as an offence. A homework diary must be brought to school daily and all homework must be signed by a parent/guardian.

Tutorials and Prep work are meticulously supervised to ensure optimal learning for each student.

A Student qualifies for a full tuition scholarship for the next session by maintaining an average of 90% and above consistently for three terms in either Junior or Senior School for that session.
