WHAT IS AS & A LEVEL COURSE ?

Thousands of learners worldwide gain places at leading universities every year with Cambridge International AS & A Levels. They are the pass to your success. The syllabuses develop a deep understanding of subjects and independent thinking skills.

A levels are recognized by employers and universities as the gold standard of British Secondary education. Good A Level passes will secure entry to the best UK and US universities and to universities worldwide.

AS Level is a stand alone qualification in all subjects in its own right as well as being the first half of an A Level. Depending on the entry requirements of the university to which you apply, an AS can add breadth to your A Level qualification.

Our experienced Counselor can help you select the right A Level courses onto your university course of choice, and can advise on all aspects of university entrance.

HOURS OF STUDY

Our A Level courses take approximately 180 hours of study. Add to this the time required to prepare your assignments.

The time will also depend on your ability as a learner and your organisational skills.
