A-levels are internationally recognised qualifications that are accepted by universities and employers around the world . Students typically study the A-levels between the ages of 17 and 18.

A-levels can help you:

  • get a place at college or university at home or abroad 
  • start the career you want
  • explore the subjects you love.

 Every year, the British Council helps more than two million people take international exams and provides support and guidance to make the whole exam process straightforward.
