Changing from CBSE to British curriculum after Class X

My daughter is 16 in August and about to complete Class X of CBSE from one of the Gem Schools.  She will have Class X CBSE exams which this year has now moved to the month of May.

My other two children previously passed XII  of CBSE but then enrolled in UK and Australian universities in Dubai and graduated from there.

Can you guide me if she continues Class XI and then has foundation courses for her graduation or otherwise if she is eligible to join Y12 of British School from September and complete the two years in any British schools.  Your guidance is highly appreciated.

Thanks for your question.  This is quite complicated but I believe that your daughter would need to have completed Grade 10 (the equivalent of Year 11 in the UK system) in order to join Year 12 in August 2022.  I do not believe that the Foundation courses would be relevant; however, to continue to Year 12, she would not be permitted to be out of school for Semester 1 of 2022, based on current KHDA regulations, and would need to therefore continue with Grade 11 for the first semester.

I would advise you to contact the schools to which you may be seeking admission for your daughter, as it is as much about whether they feel she would adapt to the UK curriculum based on her previous academic record and interests, as it is about the regulatory situation.
