A-Level program in Cheltenham College
The two-year program is designed to prepare applicants for admission to universities. The A-level certificate allows you not to pass the entrance exams, as its presence indicates a high level of academic British education.
Most high schools in the UK offer A-level to their students. The content of the program is unified and is the same for all colleges in the country. The number of subjects is small, since the emphasis is on the breadth of knowledge. The choice of each subject is determined by the student depending on the further specialty, and the studying process is intensive and profound.
In the first year, students master 4 basic subjects, in the second year - three. Cheltenham College offers a large selection of non-priority subjects, but recommends not taking close ones on subjects, so as not to disturb academic balance. As additional disciplines, students often choose those which are in the field of knowledge of their future profession.
After 12 years of training (AS-level), students take 4 exams in the subjects studied during the year. At 17-18 years, after 13 years of study, a successful passing of three exams is mandatory. The college offers a list of 24 electives, so that students define themselves their specialization, which will be devoted to the years of study at the university.
