We build the 21st century skills your students need to succeed at university and beyond
Our globally recognised International GCSE, AS and A-level qualifications have a unique focus on equipping your students with the higher-order thinking skills they need to be successful in the future.
The exam design and the way our assessment objectives are weighted make sure that our qualifications focus more on the application, rather than just the recall of knowledge.
We’re one of the fastest-growing international exam boards – with an unparalleled heritage.
OxfordAQA is a partnership between two of the most prestigious educational institutions in the world: Oxford University Press (a department of the University of Oxford) and AQA, by far the UK’s largest provider of GCSEs and A-levels.
So while you may just be getting to know us, we bring over a hundred years of educational expertise and assessment research to helping you to equip your students with the skills to lead the way in the future.
Our Fair Assessment approach allows all students the best chance to show what they can do.
Why should students who speak English as a second language, and live outside the UK, be at a disadvantage when they take international exams?
At OxfordAQA, we use a unique body of assessment expertise to tailor British curriculum exams to the needs of international students.
Our International GCSE and A-level qualifications only ever test subject ability and only use language and cultural contexts that are accessible and relevant to international students – giving every student around the globe the best possible chance to show what they can do.

But let’s be clear – fairer does not mean easier.
Benchmarked to UK standards, our exams are every bit as rigorous as you would expect. And our qualifications focus on the higher order, critical thinking skills proven to equip students for future success on their educational journey, and beyond.
