Advanced (A) and Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level Information
The Cambridge International Examinations Advanced (A) level programme is a comprehensive and rigorous two-year course, which students will study during Year 12 and Year 13. The A level programme has recently been updated and following this review is the most modern pre university course available. Cambridge University has designed the programme with the needs of international students in mind and it is very highly regarded by universities around the world. Our students will learn how to develop their own skills and knowledge base as well as learning how to deal with the specific academic issues, in each of their chosen subjects.
