The national curriculum in the UK is constructed in five key stages. Key Stage 5 covers Years 12 and 13 for pupils aged 16 – 18. During Key Stage 5, students work towards national qualifications – A-Level or IB.
A-Levels are subject-based qualifications that normally require pupils to study three or four subjects over two years. Many students choose four subjects at the beginning of their Sixth Form education and drop one course in the second year. In general, universities in the UK consider the results of at least 3 A-Level subjects as part of their entry requirements. What A-Level subjects pupils choose to study will directly impact their choice of majors for university education.
Some independent schools offer students 18-month A-Level programmes or one-year pre-university courses.
How to choose your A-Levels?
1. What subjects are you likely to enjoy and be good at? You are more likely to be driven to succeed if you have a strong interest in your subject and a certain level of knowledge of your course content.
2. Are there particular subjects and grades you may need to attain in order to meet the entry requirements of a university based on your chosen course? If you have a particular career in mind, you may need to choose certain A-Level subjects.
3. If you don’t know what you will want to study at university or what career you will be interested in, what A-Level subjects will open up more university course options and job opportunities?
