Achieving high scores on A-levels is important for UK students who wish to enter university. Institutions of higher learning use the results of these exams to decide if a student is prepared to study at their program.
After completing a college degree, a student may wish to pursue a graduate degree. The first level of such study is called a master. Students can earn this title after completing approximately two years of study when taking a full load of credits.

At Greene’s, there is a core list of CIE A levels – shown in the table below – from which students can choose any three.

Science A levels also require additional time for practical work – typically about three hours per week.
CIE A level exams take place in November and May/June of each year and each A level course is divided into two parts: A first year part called “AS” and a second year part called “A level”. Students generally take their AS exams at the end of their first year of A level study and their A level exams at the end of their second year. If needed, AS exams can be retaken the following November or May/June during the student’s second year of A level study at Greene’s....

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.

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....
