Cambridge International A-Levels

Cambridge International A Levels are an increasingly popular choice with students. Although reference to ‘International’ is made within the name of the Awarding Body, you can actually study and sit A-Levels with them in the United Kingdom as well as around the world.

With over 50 subjects available, it’s safe to say that Cambridge International A-Levels are growing in popularity with both schools and students. The courses follow the same familiar structure as A-Levels from AQA and Pearson Edexcel, with the main differences occurring with subjects such as the sciences. The science courses, Biology, Chemistry or Physics do not have a practical element. Instead, additional written papers are taken by students. This means that studying and completing the courses is much more affordable for students.

The same also applies to subjects that have a requirement for additional aspects such as projects, fieldwork or coursework. So for example, if you were to study A-Level Computer Science through Cambridge International (Cambridge International), then rather than needing to complete a programming project with an assessor, you would instead sit a fourth written paper during the examination period to demonstrate your abilities.
