A Levels are two-year long courses of rigorous academic study. They are specialist courses concentrating on one subject area and are an excellent preparation for university study, accepted by higher education institutions worldwide.
The strength of A Levels is to allow the student to undertake specialised study in their chosen subjects. Students be expected to work more independently and will be responsible for background reading, note-making and research. A Levels are typically examined at the end of the two years of study but some subjects may require fieldwork, practicals, portfolios or coursework.
Due to the academic demands of A Level courses we recommend that students have at least a grade 7 in the subjects they want to study.
