Which skills are required in the Combined Programme?

As part of the enrolment procedure for attending the Combined Programme, students are required to do an English placement test. Given that students in Years 11, 12 and 13 take final Cambridge exams in English, and that all Cambridge subjects are taught exclusively in English, it’s highly important for students to have a good base to build upon. This will enable them to develop their language skills and fully use the benefits of Savremena’s English-medium instruction.

The test complies with global standards and, rather than focusing on grammar skills, it tests language skills that have applicable value. It has been designed based on Cambridge resources, and comprises 4 parts: reading comprehension, listening, writing, and speaking.

This allows us to assess the English skills of each student, and provide feedback on their strengths and the areas that need improving.

If you would like to assess your current language level, we invite you to do a quick English test on our website, which you can also use for practice.

I am extremely pleased and proud to be the parent of a Savremena student. During my first encounter with the school management, when I asked about my child’s potential enrolment, I saw how much love, enthusiasm and professionalism you put in your work. I was impressed by your approach, ideas and methods. I couldn’t believe something like this existed in our country! It doesn’t take long to realise that this is a school you would recommend to everyone. Creativity, modern technology, top-quality education, and most of all, the humaneness that can be seen throughout the school, make it truly different and worthy of its name – Savremena Gimnazija. With such an approach, the success of this school and, consequently, our children’s success, is unavoidable. Congratulations! Jelena Đorđević, Andrija’s mum
