What is GCE A-Level?
The GCE A-Level is a subject-based school leaving qualification offered by schools which provide secondary education in the U.K. and many international schools around the world. In Scotland, the standard Scottish Higher is the more common qualification compared to GCE A-Level but some schools still offer GCE A-Level as an alternative. It is typical for students to take between 3 to 5 GCE A-Level subjects in their first year of sixth form although many of them then go on to reduce the number of their GCE A-Level subjects to around 3 in their second year, due to the fact that university admissions are mainly dependent on the results of 3 GCE A-Level subjects.
There are five main examination boards offering the GCE A-Level for different subjects:
- Assessment and Qualifications Alliance (AQA)
- Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations (OCR)
- Edexcel (Edexcel Pearson - London Examinations)
- Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC)
- Council for the Curriculum, Examinations & Assessment (CCEA)
Pearson Edexcel and Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) also offer their own international versions of the A-Level in the U.K. and across the globe.
In Hong Kong, the GCE A-level is widely accepted as an alternative to the standard Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (DSE) for university admissions and employment references. The GCE A-level is one of the most popular qualifications accepted for university admissions through the non-JUPAS channel.
