What are A-levels?
Students study for advanced level examinations, know as A-levels, for two years, usually between the ages of 16 to 19. Preparation for A-levels is often done at a specialised school, such as EF International Academy, known as a sixth form college. The first year of sixth form college is known as the lower sixth while the second year is called the upper sixth. The students take national exams at the end of the first year and again at the end of the second year. Performing well on these A-level examinations is critical because universities use A-level grades to decide which students to admit.
A-levels at EF International Academy
Performing well on A-levels requires a high level of English competence and knowledge of the British learning culture. A significant amount of independent study is required. Many international students have less experience with this British method of learning. EF International Academy’s teachers specialise in helping students perform well on A-levels. To assure students stay on track, they are regularly tested. Our tutors monitor students’ monthly test results, performance, homework and approach to studying.
