WELCOME TO THE LICS AS AND A LEVEL PROGRAMMES

For students in Year 12 and Year 13 LICS offers AS (Advanced Subsidiary) and A (Advanced) level courses to enable students to maximise their potential and ensure they get the best education possible. AS exams are usually taken in Year 12 and they are the first half of the overall A level qualification. A level exams are usually taken in Year 13. Students typically take four AS levels and then three or four A levels.

The Cambridge AS and A Level programme, typically for 16-19 year olds, helps learners to develop the deep understanding, independent learning and critical thinking skills which universities value highly. It builds on the foundations of Cambridge IGCSE and leads to entry to universities or to employment opportunities worldwide.

AS and A level courses enable students to experience the intellectual challenge and stimulation of studying a limited number of subjects in much greater depth than at IGCSE.  They are qualifications which are renowned internationally for their academic rigour and ability to prepare students for higher education.

Universities worldwide recognise that A Levels provide the depth of study required for degree-courses. They enable most students to progress directly into their chosen subject at university without having to go through a prolonged general education course at university first.

LICS offers AS and A Levels in the following subjects:

  • Applied ICT
  • Art and Design
  • Biology
  • Business
  • Chemistry
  • Economics
  • English Literature
  • French Language and Literature
  • Geography
  • History
