Curriculum

Riverside College runs both the British and Nigerian curricula simultaneously. Our teaching team consists of teachers who are qualified to teach both curricula effectively and efficiently. Students are encouraged to partake in the British curriculum as it is student friendly. The text books for this programme are designed such that students can study on their own without the teachers’ assistance. Suffice it to say that the text books are student-oriented.

The Nigeria curriculum prepares students for SSCE (Senior Secondary Certificate Examination), which is organized by WAEC and NECO, and BECE (Basic Education Certificate Examination) for junior secondary school. The subjects offered for these examinations are as follows:

  • English language
  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Biology
  • Financial Accounting
  • Computers Studies
  • Government
  • Literature-in-English
  • Christian /Islamic Religious Studies
  • Economics
  • Geography
  • Commerce
  • Trade Subject
  • Food & Nutrition
  • Data processing, etc.

The British curriculum prepares students for Check-point Examination which is conducted during the 9th year of junior secondary school, and IGCSE (International General Certificate of Secondary Education) which is written in the 11th year of senior secondary school. Both examinations are organized by CIE (Cambridge International Examination). The examinations take place in May/June and October/November respectively just like the Nigerian examinations.

The subjects for Check-point examination are English language, Mathematics and Science. That of IGCSE is broader, but students are advised to choose subjects relevant to their planned course of study in the university. French and ICT are compulsory.

Examinations at Riverside College are computer based (CBE), it is pertinent therefore, that each student has a mini laptop for this. All our students MUST offer Information and Communication Technology (ICT) as this prepares them for professional courses such as Oracle, Java, etc.
