2 year A-level

A-levels are the traditional route into the very best universities, providing in-depth preparation for degree study within higher education. Furthermore, they have international recognition. The majority of our students join the two-year programme and, with 22 subjects to select from and no timetabling restrictions, students really can create the right pathway for their own future. Many of our international students take up the option of sitting an additional A-level exam in their first language. Typically, native speakers of English take four subjects in the first year and, depending on AS results, will continue with either three or four of those subjects into their second year. In certain circumstances, students can also choose to add a different AS subject in year two. Students who are not native speakers of English have the opportunity to take IELTS (International English Language Testing System) as one of their subject choices. IELTS exams are arranged in November, March and May. All students studying A-levels need to achieve at least a C grade in three AS examinations in order to progress to A2.... [-]

A-levels are a ‘gold standard’ qualification, recognized around the world by universities and employers as a mark of academic excellence. Most students take three A-levels, and most universities require this, but other numbers between two and five are not uncommon.

Studying for A-levels is a demanding process and normally takes two full years of study in a school or college setting. However, this structure does not suit everyone.

For students who need non-standard dates, a higher level of individual support, or who want to take unusual combinations of subjects or optional modules, Carfax College is here to help.

A-level exams are currently in the middle of a process of significant change. From 2001 to 2015, exams were ‘modular’ – each subject was divided into four to six sections, and those could be taken or re-taken individually over any length of time. Now, from 2016 through to 2019, all subjects are moving in batches to a ‘linear’ format, whereby all the examinations must be sat in one session at the end of the course.... [-]

There are over 130 students in the sixth form, the majority of whom are taking three or four A-Levels on a two year programme of AS and A2. Entry is dependent on satisfactory GCSE grades usually including a range of A*, A, B and C grades together with a good reference from the previous school.

If you have studied AS Levels elsewhere and wish to join us for A2 Levels, we will give our best advice about which courses to take. Sometimes you might need to transfer examination boards. This is usually a straightforward task and we can advise you further on this matter. The college has experience in successfully enabling students’ transition into the upper sixth year.

For some international students whose English skills are judged to be not quite at the level required to undertake the Two Year A-Level Programme, a three year A-Level option is currently available. This is undertaken at a slightly slower pace to the traditional Two Year Programme.... [-]

Although subject specifications for A Levels are being reformed, these changes do not impact anyone taking one-year A Level courses starting in September 2015. The familiar specifications continue to be available this year.

The CCSS one-year A Level fast-track programme is an exceptional opportunity to gain the gold-standard A Level qualification in just one year.

On this course students take up to three subjects and it is suitable for students who have:

completed secondary high school education abroad and need A Levels to enter a British university; completed lower sixth but need to re-cover AS in addition to learning the new A2 material, or want to take new subjects alongside an A2-based programme; taken A Levels but want to re-take. Re-take students generally graduate from CCSS with improved university options and a much clearer understanding of the skills required to make the best of degree-level work. ... [-]
