International A-levels

What is International A Level?

The International A Levels are the most commonly studied curriculum around the world. They are based on the UK high school education system and are adapted for a global student base.

In Year 12 students move on to the A Levels that are further broken down into two parts: the AS Level, called “Advanced Subsidiary”, (usually done in Year 12) and A2 Level (typically done in Year 13). Traditionally, students take 4-5 AS Level subjects and then go on to take 3-4 of those subjects at the A2 Level.


The International GCSE classes course is suitable for students 16-18 years old. In some countries students divide studies over two years.


The A Level courses can be taken as a full-time or part-time option along with other subjects. Students can also take a combination of levels at CGA.


AS Level: 3 units total Two units of 1 hour 30 minutes and 80 marks each One unit of 1 hour 20 minutes and 50 marks A Level: 6 units total Two units of 1 hour 30 minutes and 80 marks each Two units of 1 hour and 45 minutes and 90 marks each Two units of 1 hour 20 minutes and 50 marks each External assessment for all units offered three times a year

Meet your educator

Di Austin

My teaching experience has been enriched by teaching at schools in New Zealand and South Africa. Whether it is teaching 15 year olds or scholarship students, at the end of their time at high school, my aim is to support, encourage and push students towards academic excellence. 

As a teacher, I have been very fortunate to have had a variety of roles and responsibilities including head of department, year level dean and been a check marker for external examinations. For the last 10 year I have been involved in online learning teaching students from Whangerei to Dunedin.

I live in the Marlborough region and consequently, have ample opportunity, in my spare time, to do what I love best -- being outdoors.
