Beyond The Classroom
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: 2 units total of 1 hour 45 minutes and 80 marks each A Level: 4 units total of 80 marks each 2 units of 1 hour 45 minutes each 2 units of two hours each External assessment for all units offered three times a year.
Students will learn to develop their understanding of mathematics and mathematical processes in a way that promotes confidence and fosters enjoyment. They will develop abilities to reason logically and recognise incorrect reasoning, to generalise and to construct mathematical proofs. They will extend their range of mathematical skills and techniques and use them in more difficult, unstructured problems and develop an understanding of coherence and progression in mathematics and of how different areas of mathematics can be connected.
