A Level examinations are usually based on approximately 360 hours of guided learning per subject, normally over a two year period.
Cambridge International AS & A Level develops learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills along with independent thinking and applying knowledge. The curriculum also encourages logical thinking and coherent presentation of arguments.
