Curriculum

Advanced levels (A levels) are made up of AS (advanced subsidiary) units and A2 units. The AS is a stand-alone qualification and is worth half a full A level. The material studies in an AS are less demanding than in the A2. The A2 is the second half of the full A level qualification. Most units are assessed by examination.

Subjects (for AY2019)

Compulsory
  • English (for IELTS)
  • Mathematics
Elective
  • Accounting
  • Further Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Chemistry
  • Chinese

Character Development

  • Pastoral Care
  • Christian Education
  • Physical Education

Promotion Criteria

Students need to pass their AS units in the first year before they are allowed to take A2 units in the following year, failing in which they may either end their study with the subject(s) at the Advanced Subsidiary level or be retained in Pre-University 1 level so that they can achieve passes in the subjects at A2 level.

External Assesments

  • In your first year, you can normally choose to study up to four A level subjects and sit AS level exams. At the end of your first year, you have two options for each subject. You can take an AS level only and gain a recognised qualification; or continue for a second year studying the A2 units and go for the full A level.
  • It is possible to resit each AS and A2 unit, but it is worth remembering that not all units are available to take in January. If you decide to resit a unit, the awarding body will automatically use the highest mark from your last two attempts to count towards your final grade.
  • ‘Cashing in’ is the process of turning your unit marks into final AS or International A level grades by letting the exam board know that you are satisfied with your results.
  • All students will have their results cashed in when they complete the course upon leaving the school.
