A-Levels at CARFAX

Carfax College Oxford

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. [+]

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.
