How many A-Levels for Admission to Top Universities?

The international A Levels provide students with a rigorous curriculum, fostering academic excellence, critical thinking, and subject depth, preparing them for success in higher education and beyond.

What are International A Levels?

The International GCSEs and 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. At Crimson Global Academy we offer the A Levels online for students around the world.

  • Students usually begin the International GCSE curriculum in Year 10 or 11 by sitting 4-5 subjects.
  • 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.
