Cambridge International Advanced Level is one of the most recognised qualifications around the world. For over 50 years, A Levels have been accepted as proof of academic ability for entry to universities and institutes of higher education. A Levels are also important to employers who frequently demand A Levels as a condition of job entry.
Subjects are graded A* through to E. Grade A* is awarded for the highest level of achievement, grade E for the lowest.
International A Level and AS Level have widespread international recognition as educational qualifications. This recognition is because:
Information Technology (IT) is an applied subject that encourages learners to become effective and discerning users of IT. It helps them to develop a broad range of IT skills, knowledge and understanding. Students study the structure and use of IT systems within a wide range of organisations, including the use of a variety of computer networks. As a result, learners gain an understanding of IT system life cycles, and how these affect the workplace. They also learn about the wider impact of IT on society in general. At A Level, learners also studysimple programming for the web relevant to their own use of IT.
