Cambridge International AS and A Levels are internationally benchmarked qualifications providing exceptional preparation for the commencement of a university education. The Advanced Level is the ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge International Examination qualifications. Students receive a qualification equivalent to that granted in the UK. The qualification is accepted universally as an entry requirement for universities, including those in Nepal.
Studying for A Level qualification is rigorous and demands a high academic standard of achievement. BMC’s programmes offer highly flexible subject combinations. Students may choose any combination from the wide choice of subjects that suit their interest and aptitude. An A level course requires students to be creative and analytical.
Specialties of the Programme
The A Level programme demands a multi-dimensional approach, including:
- Providing evidence of in-depth subject knowledge and understanding
- Developing an ability to think logically
- Presenting reasoned explanations
- Applying theoretical knowledge
- Communicating ideas and feelings in a clear and logical manner
The A and AS Level final examinations are held twice a year in May/June and October/ November, the results of which are published in August and January respectively.
