Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In the previous article, i have already introduced the IB curriculum system, today, I will continuously talk about another curriculum that adopted by top international school in Singapore the A-LEVEL curriculum.

The speciality of A-LEVEL curriculum.

A-level is a traditional blighty high school curriculum, but now has developed into a maximal and influence international school curriculum. There are more than 9000 international schools in 160 countries have opened this curriculum. The length of curriculum is two years. Students can apply the university after one years IGCSE studying and two years A-level curriculum studying. Because the IGCSE is same as the middle school in Singapore, so if you want to send your kids enter an A-level international school, he did better study from the IGCSE. Some of the international school will compress the time into one year that can let the student learn the A-level curriculum more easier.

The curriculum provision of A-LEVEL

Though the length of schooling of A-level and IB is same, but A-level students can choose the courses accord their interest. There are more than 70 courses include mathematics, arts, literature and for students to choose, and students can choose 3 to 4 courses. In the first year, students need over 4 courses and the next year is 3 courses. But if students can learn more courses, it will be helpful for them to apply the universities.

The difficulty of A-LEVEL

The A-level curriculum is more loose than the IB curriculum, only study 3 to 4 courses and there is no compulsive requirement on taking part in the extracurricular activities. Though it's easier in its total difficulty but the difficulty of a single course is higher. There are many different examinations for students, but all the examinations are accepted.

The assessment way of A-LEVEL

Every year there are two examinations for students, and every students still have one make-up examination opportunity. According to different courses, there are different papers. But all the score will convert into A, B, etc.

The recognition degree when apply universities

Though A-level is adopted by global universities and maybe your kids in the top international school in Singapore, but as the student increasing, the competition is more intense. Generally, if students get C in three courses they can apply a better university. For the Oxford, Cambridge and other world-class universities, the scores of the courses should be AAA or AAB. But many times people cannot obtain the applying from these schools even get three A.
