UK Education System

Students who wish to enter the top UK universities normally follow a 2-year A level programme. The first year is known as 鈥淵ear 12鈥 or聽鈥淟ower Sixth鈥澛燼nd students normally study 4 subjects. The second year of the programme is called 鈥淵ear 13鈥 or聽鈥淯pper Sixth鈥. Students in this year generally continue with 3 of the 4 subjects that they took in Year 12. This programme starts in September and ends in June.

Under some circumstances, it is possible for students to do an intensive 1-year聽A level programme; or to follow an 18-month course which starts in January and ends in June.

Before A levels, UK students follow a 2-year programme called GCSE, in which they study between 7 and 10 subjects. GCSE is not always suitable for international students, and so for international students who are either too young to start the A level programme, or whose English level is not yet high enough, we recommend a 3-year programme incorporating a 鈥淧re-A level year鈥.
