The Cambridge IGCSE examination has a syllabus that compares easily with any other curriculum offered in India. It has academic rigor, a diversity of content, and an evaluation procedure that ensures high standards along with consistency and reliability. Teachers have been trained in delivering the curriculum (through Introductory and Extension courses) and this has been invaluable in ensuring that there is no disparity in the school’s efforts and what is expected of the students in the examination.

From commencement till date, the school has remained committed to ensuring that every student gets the opportunity to thrive amid a holistic environment that promotes productivity and encourages them to strive for personal growth and success.

In accordance with this belief, we commenced The Gera School. The idea was to revolutionize the education space, especially in Goa, and present young aspirants with opportunities that can help them explore their potential and climb ladders of professional success. Enabling training and access to information are some of our ways to reinforce their preparation process for the upcoming IGCSE exams. I want to personally extend my best wishes to all the students and good luck for their future endeavors.”
