Cambridge Advanced is typically for learners aged 16 to 19 years who need advanced study to prepare for university and higher education. Students study the Cambridge International AS & A Level, accepted as an entry qualification by universities in the UK, across the European Union, North America, and elsewhere around the world. AS & A Level exams are usually taken after 13 years of education and are based on approximately 360 hours of guided learning per subject, normally over a two year period. Our students typically take three subjects at A level, although occasionally exceptional students take four or five.
The subject content of each of the A Level syllabuses offered at CIS, Moscow, has been subdivided into two parts: the AS syllabus content, which is expected to be covered in the first half of the course, and part two of the syllabus commonly referred to as ‘A2’. This flexible approach enables students to choose from three options:
AS Levels may be taken as a freestanding qualification and are accepted in all UK universities. They carry half the weight of an A Level so, for example, students may be admitted with suitable grades in two A Levels and two AS Levels. Details of the tariff operated by the UK Universities are given on the www.ucas.com UCAS website.
Due to the high standards applied at CIS International School, your child will receive a quality level of preparation for the A Level and AS Level exams. Highly qualified teachers of the school will always provide complete information on specialized subjects, as well as answer any students’ question, thereby reducing the psychological burden on the child.
