FORMAT OF COURSE (Modules Overview)

‘A’ Level Qualifications

The Advanced Subsidiary (AS) Level

Advanced Subsidiary (AS) courses may be used in one of two ways:

As a final qualification, allowing candidates to broaden their studies and to defer questions about specialism;

As the first half (50%) of an Advanced Level qualification, which must be completed before an Advanced Level award can be made.

Advanced Subsidiary is designed to provide an appropriate assessment of knowledge, understanding and skills expected of candidates who have completed the first half of a full Advanced Level Qualification.

The Advanced Level (AS + A2)

The Advanced Level examination is in two parts:

Advanced Subsidiary (AS) - 50% of the total award;

A second examination, called A2 - 50% of the total award  ‘A’ levels allow for considerable flexibility in the taking of exams.

The two most popular options are:

AS is completed at the end of one year and A2 at the end of the second year;

AS and A2 are completed at the end of the same year.

Suggested Reading

We would strongly encourage you to do as much background reading as you can, in order to deepen your knowledge and understanding. But with so many books available, where do you begin? This list will hopefully be helpful in giving you a starting point and narrowing down the field a little. It is not intended that you buy every, or even any, book on this list!

Most will be readily available in libraries so you can refer to them when you need to. You’ll probably find that these books vary considerably in depth and difficulty but they’re well worth looking at. You might want to ‘dip into’ them or use them as a reference source rather than reading them from cover to cover. Those marked with an * are those we would particularly recommend.
