General Certificate of Education Advanced Level (A-Level)

Most of the students in UK enter universities after completing A-Level. It is a two-year programme similar to the curriculum in Form 6 and 7 in Hong Kong’s old education system. They can choose subjects according to their future study preferences as there is no restriction on the choices of liberal arts or science subjects. In general, students take 3 to 4 subjects and they are eligible to enter UK universities with qualifications in three subjects.

Some UK private colleges, sixth form colleges and international boarding schools provide A-Level programme with higher flexibility. It is designed for international students with better English language skills and academic performances to complete their studies in shorter period of time, i.e. three to five semesters. Students in one-year programme generally study 3 subjects while students in five-semester programme can study 3 to 4 subjects depending on their abilities.
