A Levels are recognised by employers anduniversitiesalike as the “gold standard” of British Secondary education. Good A Level passes will secure entry to the best UK and US universities and to universities worldwide.
AS Level is a stand alone qualification in all subjects in its own right, as well as being the first half of an A Level. Depending on the entry requirements of the university to which you apply, an AS can add breadth to your A Level qualifications.
Note that you need to take the AL exam within 13 months of the AS exam for the qualification to remain valid. If you defer your AL exams beyond this period, you will be required to take the AS exams again. For more details seeA Level Exam Information.
Note that our experiencedUniversity Services Advisorcan help you select the right A Level courses for entry onto your university course of choice, and can advise on all aspects of university entrance including application support and references. These services are easy to access though our University Services booking form.
Wolsey Hall Oxford is a registered school of Cambridge Assessment International Education
I took two subjects, Geography and Law, with Wolsey Hall. I needed A Levels to get into University. Taking A Levels as a private student was a challenging experience, especially when I had to study and prepare in a shortened time frame, but I am glad that this good online school was there to help me out. I would like to thank Pat, Carol and Adrian for their guidance. My Tutors were very helpful, were always there to answer my questions and provided helpful advice on my work. In the end, I got A grades in both subjects!
