Preparatory Course for Singapore-Cambridge General Certificate of Education (Advances Level)
There are many pre-university programmes that you can choose from, but here are some of the top reasons why you should take A-Level.
(I) A-Level is recognised by many universities worldwide
A-Level is well-known as the gold standard of pre-university courses, and is widely accepted by universities worldwide. While it is generally the go-to programme if you wish to study in the UK, it is also accepted by many other countries, including Australia, USA, Canada & Singapore.
(II) It keeps your options open
While Foundation programmes may limit you to certain degrees at certain universities, A-Level allows you to pursue a wide range of degrees upon successful completion. This is especially great if you’re not sure what degree to study yet!
Pro Tip: Choosing Math and Science subjects will not only allow you to study Science degrees, but also Business, Law, Communication & Computer Science among others.
(III) It gives you deep knowledge in your chosen subjects
Instead of having to juggle five or six subjects, A-Level allows you to focus on only a few subjects and gain in-depth knowledge in your chosen subjects. This is great for those who are passionate about a few subjects and want to dive straight in.
(IV) There is a wide range of A-Level resources available
Materials such as past year papers, marking schemes and revision questions are readily available everywhere for A-Level. Your college will supplement you with sufficient resources to ace your exam, but if you don’t think it’s enough, the internet is filled with resources for you to go through!
