A-Levels (Advanced Level qualifications) are a UK subject-based qualification for students aged 16 and above. They are usually studied over two years, leading to qualifications recognised for entrance to higher education institutes in the UK and many others worldwide.
The first year of study is known as AS (Advanced Subsidiary) Level and is a separate qualification. It is not considered on its own as adequate for university entrance but adds value to university applications.
There are no compulsory subjects with A Levels. Students are free to choose the topics that interest them the most or feel will benefit them for their future studies or careers. Students typically study three or four subjects.
The choices you make about what and where to study in the Sixth Form will have a significant bearing on your future life and career.
