A levels are awarded after completing several modules/papers in a particular subject. The AS level is an intermediate step where a part (normally half) of the A level syllabus is studied and examined. Learners complete their A levels anywhere from age 17 upwards.
Once our learners start the AS & A level phase of their studies, they are developing a clearer idea of what their interests, strengths and future plans entail and they focus on the subjects that will support their goals.
In some subjects, the AS level is but a small step up from a good IGCSE grade and can be achieved within one or two semesters, while others may require at least two to three semesters. These options are thoroughly discussed with each learner’s family. Given that most of our learners hold high aspirations for elite university admission, we encourage quality and excellence over too large a quantity of subjects. Please refer to the FAQ for subject choices.
In the final stage, learners complete the rest of the modules/papers towards their three or four A levels during years four and five of studies, and get started on the university research, application and admission process.
