What are A Levels?
The GCE Advanced Level, or A Levels, is a pre-university programme with a rigorous academic syllabus. The highly sought after UK-based qualification provides students with a solid foundation of fundamental knowledge within a specific subject area. It is equivalent to other pre-university programmes such as the Malaysian STPM, Canadian Pre-university and Australian Matriculation. Students have the flexibility to choose between a minimum of 2 and a maximum of up to 4 subjects.
There is a common perception that A Levels are one of the more difficult pathways for pre-university, considering the papers are coordinated by the esteemed Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (CAIE). However, keep in mind that this also means your qualifications are often stronger compared to other candidates when applying to a competitive degree programme.
How is the A Levels programme structured?
- Advanced Subsidiary (AS Level) – Year 1
- A2 Level – Year 2
Depending on your intake and institution, A Levels in Malaysia may take between 15 – 24 months to complete.
What subjects should I take?
