GCE Advanced Level Qualification also known as A-Levels can be studied in a variety of subjects for more information please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GCE_Advanced_Level#Subjects_Offered
Since 2001, the structure of A-levels have now changed, instead of doing a 2 year course, it is now split into two one year courses known as AS and A2. At the end of each year, you will sit an exam which will count towards your overall A-Level grade. Throughout your A-levels you will do a range of modules that will also be assessed and count towards your overall final grade. The number of A-Levels you study is up to you and what you can handle, but the typical route to follow is to take 4 subjects at AS Level and then continue with 3 of those subjects up to A2. The number of A-Levels that you will study will vary according to your ability and to the amount of qualifications you need to get onto your chosen university course.
A-Levels are far different from GCSEs, your workload will increase and you will have to be much more independent in terms of completing your work. Please click the link to download the Toolkit.
