Teaching and learning
Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course, and Cambridge International AS Level is typically one year.
Your learners can choose from a range of assessment options to gain Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications:
We hold Cambridge International AS & A Level examination series twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January.
* The staged assessment route is not possible in all subjects. The outcomes awarded for Cambridge International AS Level language syllabuses cannot be carried forward to Cambridge International A Level.
Each subject that a learner takes receives a separate grade.
Grades are benchmarked using internationally recognised grades, which have clear guidelines to explain the standards of achievement.
The Cambridge International A Level is reported on a grade scale from A* (highest) to E (minimum required performance). There is no A* grade for Cambridge International AS Levels, which run from grade A to E.
We also provide worldwide results statistics for Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.
Many schools use Cambridge International AS Level to give learners valuable feedback on their performance, identifying strengths and weaknesses before they complete their full Cambridge International A Level.
