Senior High School (SMA)

Senior High School  (SMA) - Global Assessment Certificate (GAC)

The Global Assessment Certificate (GAC) program is the world's most recognized university preparation program for students who do not have English as their first language.

The GAC is a university preparation program that provides students with the academic knowledge, skills, and confidence to enter and successfully complete a bachelor's degree at one of many selected universities. If you want to study overseas, successful completion of the GAC is a pathway into a bachelor degree at one of many GAC Pathway Universities in the United States, Australia, Canada, United Kingdom, and other countries world-wide.

All students who complete the GAC are eligible to take the ACT® test, a multiple choice test that covers four areas of study: English, mathematics, reading, and science. An optional writing test is also available. This test is used extensively by universities in the USA to determine university entry. The GAC is the only international university preparation program that includes the ACT test as part of its curriculum. The GAC curriculum includes units that help students prepare for the ACT test.

The GAC consists of three levels of study, and a fast-track option is available for those who meet the specified entry requirements. The core program consists of English, Mathematics, Computing, Business, Science and Social Science supported by systematic study of learning skills for success at university. Elective units allow students to choose between the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) and the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) preparation, and they also have the option of taking an additional mathematics unit during Level III.

The GAC delivers

Global Acceptance, with entry into a range of universities worldwide. The GAC prepares you for admission into a number of undergraduate programs.

Global Recognition will showcase your individual ability to GAC Pathway Universities. You will have an ACT score, a GAC grade point average (GPA) and either a TOEFL or IELTS score.

Global Success, with up to one year of credit offered to you by selected GAC Pathway Universities in the United States. This allows you to complete your university studies faster, saving you a significant amount in tuition fees and living expenses.
