A-Level program in Queen Ethelburga's College Boarding school
A-level is an educational program for admission to higher education institutions in Britain and the world. Certificate A-level exempts from additional examinations when enrolling in universities. The program usually provides two years of classes and is the benchmark of the country's schooling.
The A-level program is academically unified and practiced in most high schools and colleges in Britain. The main property of the program is not the quantity of objects, but the vastness and depth of knowledge. Intensive study of several disciplines allows the student to prepare for a profession in a university.
The first year of study provides for in-depth mastery of four compulsory subjects. In the second year, the number of priority disciplines is reduced to three. All the students of the A-level course have already chosen the future specialization and are purposefully preparing to receive it. Schools recommend that when choosing subjects not to take close by content and observe the academic balance.
The study of the four main disciplines of the program complements one elective. Foreign students for the International GCSE deposit choose English as a foreign language. The General Studies course is part of the program for general development. As an optional subject, you can choose any foreign language from the list offered by the school. At A-level, subjects such as chemistry, psychology, business basics, English and literature, mathematics, biology, history, physics, political science, art, geography, Spanish, French, German, law, economics, design and technology are handed over. For native speakers of Russian or Chinese languages, the A2 examinations for the native language are provided.
