We offer a large range of A Level subjects for our UK Learners. Please see below for our full list.
A Levels were introduced in 1951 to replace the higher school certificate. This allowed students to decide which subjects they wished to study in a more in-depth form. The original A Levels were marked on a distinction, pass, or fail basis. As the mark scheme changed to the more modernised system we see today, more students decided to progress down this route and complete their A Levels.
It is common knowledge that A Levels are the traditional qualifications that are offered by schools and colleges for students. They generally focus on academic subjects and are very highly valued by employers and universities alike, opening numerous opportunities for further study and career progression. You usually study three or more A Levels over two years and they are assessed by a series of exams. You can also complete an A Level within 12 months if you have a tight deadline to meet and your Tutor will fast-track you at no additional cost.
A Levels are recognised by many universities worldwide as the main method of assessing candidates who wish to apply for higher education. As we have modernised the way A Levels have been taught and with the development of the student portal, your course is administered in an organised, structured format. You will find all aspects of your course located in the same place, so no more searching for the relevant information.
There are many reasons to choose A Levels online, such as flexibility, time management, individual focused learning and more. With our A Level online courses, you will have access to course materials covering the specification required, assessments with feedback, access to your Tutors via the online learning portal and access to a whole range of resources.
Subjects such as IGCSE Maths and English are required for most universities, courses, apprenticeships, and jobs. A level 4 or grade C will open more opportunities for you but you should always check with your chosen university what their entry requirements are. Although sixth forms colleges can offer these courses, it is not always the most flexible option. Obstacles such as existing jobs, childcare or mental health can prevent people using traditional forms of education. Therefore, you may decide to complete an online course which allows you to achieve qualifications at your own pace. Though Maths and English are popular among universities and colleges, you may also decide to take other subjects such as Geography or ICT, which are popular with many learners.

You may decide to study online for flexibility, this allows you to take your time when learning and not put yourself under pressure. It also means you can fit your studies around things that are already a priority in your life, such as looking after your children or a full-time job. You can read more about this on our most recent blog post. Traditional colleges do not allow for much wiggle room in the way you learn, it can sometimes feel very restrictive and does not fit into the average adult’s daily life. College and sixth form do not always suit all students and does not allow for a change in the way they are taught. As an adult it is also easier to arrange your studying around your life if the course is online, this means you do not have to go into a new environment every day and you can just pick it up and study wherever you are. Online study also allows you to travel with your course, meaning you can study on the train or even in a completely different country. Learning online, enables you to study from anywhere at any time so that you are in charge of your life, rather than the other way around.
It is never too late to learn new things or change careers. With technology making strides every day, now is the best time to take your future into your own hands. By learning on your own terms, you can find out what works for you and motivate yourself to achieve your goals. If you are an older student, you may find that you are much more focused than when you were back in school as you understand the reasons why you are trying to achieve your qualifications.
