A Level Programme

A Levels are very useful internationally recognized qualifications, which open up new opportunities for you to get a place at universities in UK, Hong Kong, Singapore or Australia. You will need the right A level subjects to get a place on your chosen undergraduate degree and to enable yourself to step forward onto your ideal career path in both Asia and Western countries. You can choose the fast track or two-year pathway.

Our Fast Track A Level Programme

The Compulsory Subjects

IELTS Preparation (Academic Module)

IELTS (International English Language Testing System) is a fundamental requirement for non-native speakers of English to study on English medium university programmes. It is a proficiency test which determines your current level of English and assures universities that you are able to follow the degree course content without struggling due to language difficulties. You will need to attain a minimum of band 6 – 6.5 in IELTS to take up your place on a University Undergraduate Degree course, higher for more competitive courses. This preparation course will train you to use your English to achieve the required band score.

English for Academic Purposes

EAP is a support module which does not lead to a test or exam. Instead, it provides you with important elements of academic English to assist you in your studies. This includes the four skills of Reading, Listening, Speaking and Writing along with more specific academic skills such as note-taking, research skills, drafting and editing essays (where relevant) and critical thinking. There will also be support given for speaking and plenty of practice of sharing ideas throughout the course as this is essential in any English medium classroom.

The Elective Subjects

PAS Fast Track A level courses will follow the same curricula as Oxford AQA’s A level subjects for all subjects except Chinese and Computer Science, which will follow that of Cambridge International Assessment. Both exam boards have worked very closely with universities to ensure their qualifications give students the best possible chance to progress and realise their potential.
