A-levels are internationally recognized qualifications. Universities in many countries will accept three A level A-C grades as meeting the admissions criteria across a wide range of courses.
A-levels are all taught in small groups of shared tuition.
At Greene’s, there is a core list of CIE A levels – shown in the table below – from which students can choose any three.
Core A level subjects
Science A levels also require additional time for practical work – typically about three hours per week.
CIE A level exams take place in November and May/June of each year and each A level course is divided into two parts: A first year part called “AS” and a second year part called “A level”. Students generally take their AS exams at the end of their first year of A level study and their A level exams at the end of their second year. If needed, AS exams can be retaken the following November or May/June during the student’s second year of A level study at Greene’s....

The A Level programme is studied at Level 3 over a two year period. You will study in a traditional way where your final grades will be based on end of year exams.
The qualification is divided into an AS Level (year 1) and an A2 Level (year 2) which each make up 50% of your overall grade. Most students take 4 subjects in their first year and 3 in their second year. We have 34 subjects available at A Level (22 of which have a 100% pass rate):
Critical and Contextual Studies
Drama & Theatre Studies
English Language & Literature
Government & Politics

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....
