AS and A Level
Since 1863, the University of Cambridge has provided standardised educational assessment services worldwide. The University of Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) is the leading provider of international qualifications for young people aged 14 to 19. Every year, thousands of candidates take the Cambridge examinations in over 150 countries to help students obtain admission to top colleges worldwide.
The curriculum fosters an in-depth knowledge of subjects as well as critical thinking abilities. Cambridge students are widely accepted at leading study destinations such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and many other countries. The AS/A Levels are a highly specialised programme in which students typically study four or five subjects from a varied spectrum of subjects ranging from Languages, Arts, Design, Media Studies, History, Psychology, Computer Science, Economics, Social Studies, etc. The curriculum is designed to meet international standards, sans cultural bias. This programme allows students to build in-depth knowledge and understanding, excellent reasoning abilities, and critical thinking skills. Because of these factors, colleges worldwide, including India’s top universities, have recognised and accepted the programme.
The A Level syllabus’ subject content has been divided into two parts: the AS syllabus content, which is covered in the first half of the course (Grade 11), and the A2 syllabus content, which is covered in Grade 12. This adaptable method allows students to complete a staged assessment by taking the AS certificate in one session (at the end of Grade 11) and the A2 qualification in a subsequent session (at the end of Grade 12). Students with A Level qualifications can expect to get course credits and scholarships at universities. Students with a strong academic record stand a chance of getting full scholarships as well.
