Students who wish to pursue an advanced education at a British university are often required to take A-levels. These are tests that assess a student’s proficiency and probability of finding success in a specific field.
Students who want to further their education after obtaining a bachelor’s degree may want to pursue a Master. This advanced degree is available in a wide range of areas such as science, business, technology, arts and humanities.
Europe, one of the world's seven continents, is usually known as the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia. Second smallest continent, with 10,180,000 (km2), the area regroups 50 countries.

A-levels are the traditional route into the very best universities, providing in-depth preparation for degree study within higher education. Furthermore, they have international recognition. The majority of our students join the two-year programme and, with 22 subjects to select from and no timetabling restrictions, students really can create the right pathway for their own future. Many of our international students take up the option of sitting an additional A-level exam in their first language. Typically, native speakers of English take four subjects in the first year and, depending on AS results, will continue with either three or four of those subjects into their second year. In certain circumstances, students can also choose to add a different AS subject in year two. Students who are not native speakers of English have the opportunity to take IELTS (International English Language Testing System) as one of their subject choices. IELTS exams are arranged in November, March and May. All students studying A-levels need to achieve at least a C grade in three AS examinations in order to progress to A2....

Although subject specifications for A Levels are being reformed, these changes do not impact anyone taking one-year A Level courses starting in September 2015. The familiar specifications continue to be available this year.
The CCSS one-year A Level fast-track programme is an exceptional opportunity to gain the gold-standard A Level qualification in just one year.
On this course students take up to three subjects and it is suitable for students who have:
completed secondary high school education abroad and need A Levels to enter a British university;
completed lower sixth but need to re-cover AS in addition to learning the new A2 material, or want to take new subjects alongside an A2-based programme;
taken A Levels but want to re-take. Re-take students generally graduate from CCSS with improved university options and a much clearer understanding of the skills required to make the best of degree-level work.
The College boasts an outstanding record of achievement for A Level students. In 2013, the overall pass rate was an impressive 98% from 1,622 entries – and students achie

Critical and Contextual Studies
Drama & Theatre Studies

This distance learning A level Maths course builds on work covered in GCSE Maths at Higher Level, so you need to be familiar with all the mathematics at this level, and your skills should be at least up to GCSE Grade B standard. If you have not studied maths for some time, it would be advisable to brush up your skills by revising some of the Higher Level GCSE topics. One way to do this is on the BBC website "GCSE Bitesize" which provides an interactive revision programme. This course is designed for students working at home. The topics are presented in small "chunks" with worked examples followed by activities for the student. Revision tests are provided after every three or four sections, and there is a Test Paper at the end of each module, which is a mock exam, so you should revise the content of the module before you do the Test Paper....

A-levels are a ‘gold standard’ qualification, recognized around the world by universities and employers as a mark of academic excellence. Most students take three A-levels, and most universities require this, but other numbers between two and five are not uncommon.
Studying for A-levels is a demanding process and normally takes two full years of study in a school or college setting. However, this structure does not suit everyone.
For students who need non-standard dates, a higher level of individual support, or who want to take unusual combinations of subjects or optional modules, Carfax College is here to help.
A-level exams are currently in the middle of a process of significant change. From 2001 to 2015, exams were ‘modular’ – each subject was divided into four to six sections, and those could be taken or re-taken individually over any length of time. Now, from 2016 through to 2019, all subjects are moving in batches to a ‘linear’ format, whereby all the examinations must be sat in one session at the end of the course....
