What is GCE A Level?
GCE A-Level is a globally recognized certificate of secondary school exam, and also known as A-Level. A-Level is the last two academic years of the British secondary school and mainly to prepare students to enter the British University of Bachelor degree courses. It is offered by various examination boards, including Edexcel, AQA, OCR and Cambridge(Cambridge Pre-U).
Most of the Sixth Form Colleges in UK offer GCE A-Level. The first year called Lower Sixth and the second year called Upper Sixth. In the two-year course, students have to specialize in 3-4 subjects. Most of the British universities require students to complete A-Level courses. For some competitive departments such as medicine, law and engineering, excellent A-Level results is necessary. Hong Kong and other countries also recognized the GCE A-Level results as admission requirements. Therefore, some Hong Kong students will take the GCE A-Level, and then apply for NON-JUPAS to enter Hong Kong's universities.
