Cambridge Assessment A Level

Cambridge Assessment International Education AS and A Levels are internationally benchmarked qualifications providing exceptional preparation for the commencement of university education. The Advanced Level is the ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge International Examination qualifications. Students receive a qualification equivalent to that granted in the UK. The qualification is accepted universally as an entry requirement for universities, including those in Nepal.

Studying for A Levels qualification is rigorous and demands a high academic standard of achievement. TBC’s programmes offer highly flexible subject combinations. Students may choose any combination from the wide choice of subjects that suit their interest and aptitude. An A level course requires students to be creative and analytical.

  • Providing evidence of in-depth subject knowledge and understanding
  • Developing an ability to think logically
  • Presenting reasoned explanations

Course Description
The General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Level, or A Level, is a main school leaving qualification in England, Wales, Northern Ireland, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. It is available as an alternative qualification in other countries. Students generally study for A-levels over a two-year period. For much of their history, A-levels have been examined by "terminal" examinations taken at the end of these two years. A more modular approach to examination became common in many subjects starting in the late 1980s, and standard for September 2000 and later cohorts, with students taking their subjects to the half-credit "AS"-level after one year and proceeding to full A-level the next year (sometimes in fewer subjects). In 2015, Ofqual decided to change back to a terminal approach where students sit all examinations at the end of the second year. AS is still offered, but as a separate qualification; AS grades no longer count towards a subsequent A-level. Most students study two or three A level subjects simultaneously during the two post-16 years (ages 16–18) in a secondary school, in a sixth form college, in a further and higher education college, or in a tertiary college, as part of their further education. A Levels are recognised by many universities as the standard for assessing the suitability of applicants for admission in England, Wales, and Northern Ireland, and many such universities partly base their admissions offers on a student's predicted A-level grades, with the majority of these offers conditional on achieving a minimum set of final grades.
