Advanced Subsidiary level and Advanced level from Cambridge International Examinations, in short AS/A levels are recognised and highly valued by universities and employers across the globe. The Diploma is designed to develop breadth as well as depth and to provide learners with a robust, rigorous and challenging programme. The skills such as critical reasoning, research, team work and argumentation are emphasised in this program along with the subject knowledge which is laid down as fundamentals.
A levels are taken over 2 years: the first year is called an AS, or advanced subsidiary, level. This is equal to half an A level. The second year is called an A, or advanced, level. It’s also sometimes referred to as an A2, and is equal to a full A level qualification. AS levels can be taken as a stand-alone qualification, or as the first part of an A level course.
