A Level University of Cambridge

Cambridge offers a range of Cambridge International AS & A Level teaching support and resource materials for each subject. Select the subjects below for details of the support resources available for each syllabus.

Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course, and Cambridge International AS Level is typically one year.

Assessment options

Your learners can choose from a range of assessment options to gain Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications:

  1. Take the Cambridge International AS Level only. The syllabus content is half a Cambridge International A Level.
  2. Take a ‘staged’ assessment route – take the Cambridge International AS Level in one examination series and complete the final Cambridge International A Level at a subsequent series.*
  3. Take all papers of the Cambridge International A Level course in the same examination session, usually at the end of the course.

We hold Cambridge International AS & A Level examination series twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January.

The staged assessment route is not possible in all subjects. The outcomes awarded for Cambridge International AS Level language syllabuses cannot be carried forward to Cambridge International A Level.

Reporting achievement

Each subject that a learner takes receives a separate grade.

Grades are benchmarked using internationally recognised grades, which have clear guidelines to explain the standards of achievement.

The Cambridge International A Level is reported on a grade scale from A* (highest) to E (minimum required performance). There is no A* grade for Cambridge International AS Levels, which run from grade A to E.

We also provide worldwide results statistics for Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.

Performance feedback

Many schools use Cambridge International AS Level to give learners valuable feedback on their performance, identifying strengths and weaknesses before they complete their full Cambridge International A Level.
