What is an A-levels program?

Advanced Level qualifications, popularly known as A-Levels, are a U.K subject-based qualification for students aged 16 and above. The programme is usually studied over the course of 2 years, leading to qualifications widely acceptable for entrance to higher institutions in the U.K. and many other countries of the world with three subjects as the minimum requirement by most institutes.

There are also Advanced Subsidiary levels (AS Levels), a separate qualification, which equate to the first year of study on the full 2-year A Level course.  However, most institutions do not consider AS levels as an adequate qualification for entrance.

What are the A-level courses?

Students generally take 3 A-Levels subjects according to their interest and academic pathway.  Some of the subjects include English Language & Literature, French, Maths, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, History, Geography, Psychology, Economics, Art, Information Technology and Modern Foreign Languages such as French, German, and Spanish, etc.
