What is an A-level?
Advanced Levels or A-Levels are subject-based qualifications that British students aged 16 or older must get if they plan to enter university or just want to gain better knowledge in a particular study area or professionthey are into. A-levels are studied across two years: your AS year (Year 12) and your A2 year (Year 13).
- Study four subjects in their AS year.
- Drop one, which they achieve an AS-level in.
- Continue with the other three in their A2 year to achieve full A-levels in these.
What A-level subjects can you study?
There are around 80 different subjects available to study at A-level. However, the options available to you will depend on which your school or college offers.
Typical A-level subjects include:
- Ones you’ve studied before: history, music, chemistry etc.
- Variations on ones you’ve studied before: eg you could choose between English literature, English language, or English literature and language; or you could take maths and further maths.
- Subjects you’ve never had the chance to study before: eg law, philosophy, psychology etc.
English, maths and sometimes science are the important subjects to get this in – not just when applying to A-levels, but to university and jobs too – as well as any subjects you plan to study at A-level.
Do A levels expire?
No, they don’t.
