Cambridge AS & A Level


Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifcations are taken in over 130 countries with more than 530 000 subject entries each year. They are typically for learners aged 16 to 19 years who need advanced study to prepare for higher education.


Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course, and Cambridge International AS Level is typically one year. 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.

Students 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 and critical thinking skills – abilities that universities value highly.

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

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