It is possible that the school might not be aware of this but you can ask them to contact Edexcel, who will confirm it for them. In that case, the private candidate can usually sit in the same room and share an invigilator. If the exam centre does not have anybody else taking an exam on that day then you would normally be asked to pay for an invigilator.

Exam centres are under no obligation to accept private candidates; it creates extra work for them and may involve some disruption to their schedule or difficulties for the school.

A-levels including science practicals. Each AS level contained half the content of an A-Level, and at the same level of difficulty.

A levels evolved gradually from a two-year linear course with an exam at the end, to a modular course, between the late s and Curriculum was introduced in September , with the first new examinations taken in January and June of the following year. Prior to Government reforms of the A Level system, A-levels consisted of two equally weighted parts: AS Advanced Subsidiary Level, assessed in the first year of study, and A2 Level, assessed in the second year of study.

Following the reforms, while it is still possible to take the AS Level as a stand-alone qualification, those exams do not count toward the full A Level, for which all exams are taken at the end of the course.

An AS course usually comprises two modules, or three for science subjects and Mathematics; full A Level usually comprises four modules, or six for sciences and Mathematics. The modules within each part may have different weights. Modules are either assessed by exam papers marked by national organisations, or in limited cases by school-assessed, externally moderated coursework.

A wide variety of subjects are offered at A-level by the five exam boards. Although exam boards often alter their curricula, this table shows the majority of subjects which are consistently available for study. The number of A-level exams taken by students can vary. A typical route is to study four subjects at AS level and then drop down to three at A2 level, although some students continue with their fourth subject.

Three is usually the minimum number of A Levels required for university entrance, with some universities specifying the need for a fourth AS subject. There is no limit set on the number of A Levels one can study, and a number of students take five or more A Levels. It is permissible to take A Levels in languages one already speaks fluently, or courses with overlapping content, even if not always fully recognized by universities.

Those who do not reach the minimum standard required for a grade E receive the non-grade U unclassified. On each assignment, the correspondence of raw marks to UMS is decided by setting grade boundaries, a process which involves consultation by subject experts and consideration of statistics, aiming to keep standards for each grade the same year on year. In Further Mathematics and Additional Further Mathematics, where more than three A2 modules can be taken, the three best-scoring A2 modules count.

Recent research and the corresponding findings have shown that over a time span of several years students from Northern Ireland would outperform students from England and Wales in A-level examinations. This conclusion is based mainly on the percentage of pupils achieving the respective grades in respective exams.

In the United States of America USA the high school diploma is the qualification generally required for entry into colleges and universities. As the more academically rigorous A Levels awarded at Year 13 are expected for university admission, the high school diploma alone is generally not considered to meet university requirements.

Students who wish to study in the United Kingdom may additionally participate in the Advanced Placement AP or International Baccalaureate IB programs, which are considered to be at the level of the A Level qualifications and earn points on the UCAS Tariff , [17] [19] or may opt to take A Level examinations in British international schools or as private candidates.

The Universities and Colleges Admissions Service UCAS recommends that in addition to a high school diploma, grades of 3 or above in at least two, or ideally three, Advanced Placement exams may be considered as meeting general entry requirements for admission. For the College Entrance Examination Board tests, a minimum score of or higher in all sections of the SAT or a minimum score of 26 or higher in all sections of the ACT along with a minimum score of in relevant SAT Subject Tests may be considered as meeting general entry requirements for admission.

Access arrangements must be approved by the exam board concerned. There are others available, but these are the most commonly used. A-level examinations in the UK are currently administered through 5 awarding bodies: The present 5 can trace their roots via a series of mergers or acquisitions to one or more of the originally 9 GCE Examination boards.

Additionally, there are two examination boards offering A level qualifications internationally: Edexcel and the CIE. In the UK it is customary for schools to register with multiple examination boards and to "mix and match" A Levels to get a combined curriculum that fits the school profile.

A Levels are usually studied by students in Sixth Form, which refers to the last two years of secondary education in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, taken at ages 16— Some secondary schools have their own Sixth Form, which admits students from lower year groups, but will often accept external applications.

There are also many specialist Sixth Form and Further Education Colleges which admit from feeder schools across a large geographic area. Admission to A level programmes is at the discretion of providers, and usually depends on GCSE grades.

A Levels are offered as an alternate qualification by a small number of educational institutions in Scotland , in place of the standard Scottish Higher , and the Advanced Higher levels of the Scottish Qualifications Certificate. The schools that offer A Levels are mainly private fee-paying schools particularly for students wishing to attend university in England. Many international schools choose to use the British system for their wide recognition.

Furthermore, students may choose to sit the papers of British examination bodies at education centres around the world, such as those belonging to the British Council. A Level students often apply to universities before they have taken their final exams, with applications administered centrally through UCAS.

Far more often, the offers are conditional on A level grades, and become void should the student fail to achieve the marks expected by the university for example, conditional offer of three A Levels at grades B-B-C. The university is obliged to accept the candidate if the conditions are met, but is not obliged to reject a candidate who misses the requirements. Leniency may in particular be shown if the candidate narrowly misses grades.

This allows greater flexibility to students, as points could also, for example, be achieved through the combination A-B-D, which would not have met the requirements of a B-B-C offer because of the D grade.
