A level is the common name for the General Certificate of Education Advanced Level Certificate (GCE A level). It is a high school qualification studied in England, Wales and Northern Ireland by pre-university students. A level is the standard assessment of applicants for UK university admission and is highly respected worldwide. It is equivalent to high school diplomas in certain countries and can be used to apply to universities in most parts of them world. At Malvern College Egypt we offer a diverse range of A Level subjects.

The A level is split into two stages. Our pupils start in Lower Sixth choosing 4 AS level subjects which they progress onto A2 level which is taken in the Upper Sixth (years 13 and 14 in Northern Ireland).  Some students may opt to leave 1 subject as an AS, which can be counted towards University entry. To complete an A level, students sit an examination at the end of each academic year.

For more information on the A Level subjects on offer at Malvern College Egypt and their examination layout, please refer to the A Level and IBDP Option Booklet.
