Information to help you decide
We hope this page will give you all the additional information you need as you select your AS and/or A level subjects.
We offer AS and A levels from Cambridge, Edexcel and Edexcel International.
Cambridge AS and A level exams are held in May/June and in October/November each year both in the UK and internationally. The May/June sitting is the more widely available. There is also a March sitting in some subjects for students in India.
Edexcel UK AS and A level exams are only available in May/June, though they are available internationally.
Edexcel International AS and A level exams are available in January, May/June and October every year, but are not available to students in the UK.
All of our A level courses include a number of past exam papers in the final module. These include the most recent paper which can be taken as a mock exam and submitted to your Tutor for assessment and feedback for a modest additional fee.
In the UK, most students take three A level subjects over two academic years in order to apply for university. Strong academic candidates might consider taking an additional AS qualification or a fourth A level to boost their application for competitive courses. A levels can however be studied simply for pleasure.
Where they are applying for university, students should choose subjects that are either required or recommended for their desired university degree course. Information about entrance to UK universities is available at UCAS.
