Schools have a choice of 55 subjects and the freedom to offer them in almost any combination. Learners can specialise or study a broad range of subjects, many of which are offered at The British Academy.

Learners can choose from a range of assessment options, including Cambridge International AS Level qualifications alone, or as part of a progression to Cambridge International A Level.

Benefits for your child

Cambridge International AS Level is typically a one-year course, while Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course. Schools can choose to offer Cambridge International AS Level qualifications in their own right, or as a way to progress to Cambridge International A Level.

Learners can choose from a range of 55 subjects, meaning they can study what they enjoy and are good at. They develop a deep understanding of the subjects they study, as well as independent learning, critical thinking skills and abilities that universities value highly.

Cambridge International AS and A Levels are designed for learners worldwide, including those whose first language is not English. Assessment takes place at the end of the course, and gives learners a variety of ways to show their knowledge and skills.

Thousands of learners use Cambridge International AS and A Levels every year to gain places at leading universities worldwide, including the UK, US, Australia, Canada and New Zealand.

Worldwide opportunities

All UK universities and over 500 US universities accept Cambridge International A Level qualifications, including Harvard, MIT, Stanford and Yale. In places such as the US and Canada, good grades in carefully chosen Cambridge International A Level subjects can result in up to one year of university course credit.
