AQA Awarding Body

When looking at taking either A-Levels or GCSEs, one of the Awarding Bodies you will hear about frequently is AQA. The AQA Awarding Body is very widely used within schools and colleges around the UK, making it a very popular body for courses.

Although it is an internationally recognised Awarding Body and universities around the world will accept their qualifications. Currently, it’s only possible to sit the examinations for either the A-Levels or GCSEs in the UK. However, with that said, this doesn’t mean that International students cannot take the exams, it just means they would have to travel to the UK to sit them.

What A-Level Subjects are Available with the AQA Awarding Body?

As AQA is such an established Awarding Body there are currently over 30 different A-Level subjects that you can study through them. For example, you could study any of the following courses:
