Should You Study A - Levels?

Many students see A - Levels only as a stepping stone to university, worth nothing by themselves.

This is wrong. An A - Levels are is a two you course, only one year less than a degree. While a degree is taken as a single subject, or two subjects for a joint honours degree, A - Levels are typically taken as a group of three or four. Even so, Maths, Further Maths and Physics taken at A - Level is not far short of a degree in terms of time spent.

Some employers will accept A - Levels as qualifying you to enter their management training program, and the army will accept them as qualifying you to enter their officer core.

Whether you intend to go to university or not, stay on in the sixth for to take A - Levels or the IB.
