All about A-levels: Fast Tracking Your Studies in the UK 

Is it your dream to study in the UK? Then you’ve got to know more about the A-levels concept if you want to increase your chance of being accepted to a prestigious UK university. 

What is it about? 

A-levels (Advanced Level) are the traditional qualifications that are offered by schools and colleges for students 16-19 years old. 

Who is it for? 

Many students in Years 12 and 13 take it up after completing their GCSEs. 

Why is it important? 

1.    A-levels are the UK’s gold standard for university entry. 

Earning your A-levels can give you a competitive edge among other applicants to your university of choice.

2.    A-levels are the best way into top UK universities. 

Whether you’ve set your eyes on Cambridge, Oxford or other Russell Group institutions – A-levels are their preferred entry qualification.

3.    A-levels ease your transition and culture shock to the university life in the UK. 

Your A-levels experience is a great introduction to the rigorous study habits required by UK universities. It will help you not only survive and cope up with the demands of the academic life but thrive and experience satisfying success both in and out of the university.

4.    A-levels are recognized internationally.

If you want to widen your institution options, having A-levels offers you to skip other qualification requirements and get onto the next stage of your admission.

5.    A-levels hone your skills perfectly.

There is nothing wrong with getting broad education experience but with A-levels, you can be assured that you can focus on select subjects that will help you excel in your university studies. 

6.    A-levels enhance your English skills.

International students who have A-levels find one key advantage before starting their degree programme in the UK – superior English language skills.

7.    A-levels give you competitive work advantage.

A strong set of A-levels result combined with a degree from a prestigious UK university helps you stand out among other candidates even in the global market.
