GCE AS-levels and A-levels
Students are advised to choose A Level subjects that will help their future career and/or university application. A-levels take two years to complete (ages 16–18, Years 12 and 13). In the first year, students study four or five subjects at AS-level, which is both the first half of an A-level and a qualification in its own right. In the second year, students select three or four of the subjects they studied at AS-level to continue through to A-level. This part of the A-level is known as A2. A-levels are being reviewed at the moment and there are changes planned, with new A-level exams being considered for 2019.
