There are four curriculums:

  1. Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE)
  2. Pearson Edexcel
  3. Oxford International AQA

Clearing the myth English version vs English mediums:

There is another very common curriculum in Bangladesh. That is known as English Version. In reality, English medium schools are different from the English version.
