The General Certificate of Education Advanced Level, or A-Level, is the ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge qualifications. It is accepted as an entry qualification by universities of the European Union and elsewhere around the world. “A” Level examinations are usually taken after 13 years of education.
“A” Levels are highly specialized and a student should take a minimum of two subjects as per the requirements of the Ministry of Education U.A.E., although occasionally exceptional students take more.
The subject content of each of the CIE A Level syllabuses has been subdivided into two parts: the AS syllabus content which is expected to be covered in Year 12, and part two of the syllabus commonly referred to as ‘A2’ which will be covered in Year 13.
The General Certificate of Education Advanced Subsidiary Level, or AS Level, represents the first half of an A-Level course but may also be taken as a freestanding qualification. AS Level examinations are usually taken at the end of Year 12. However, they are also sometimes studied over two years and taken at the end of Year 13. AS Levels are accepted in all UK universities and carry half the weighting of an A-Level. For example, students may be admitted with suitable grades in two A Levels and two AS Levels (in place of 3 A-Levels).
The courses of study for AS Level and A Level available currently at Providence English Private School are:
