Preparatory Course for Cambridge International A-Level

Preparatory Course for Cambridge International A-Level

Cambridge International Advanced Levels (A Levels) are subject-based qualifications usually taken in the final two years of high school. Assessment takes place at the end of each programme. The syllabuses are international in outlook but retain local relevance. They have been created specifically for an international student body with content to suit a wide variety of schools and avoid cultural bias. The contexts or examples used in syllabuses and exam question papers are culturally sensitive in an international context. Offered since 1951, these qualifications are administered by Cambridge Assessment International Education, a part of the University of Cambridge.

At the end of the course, students will sit for the Cambridge International (Advanced Level) Examination conducted by the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE).
