Legae Academy also offers Cambridge International AS & A Levels. This is an advanced qualification aimed at students ranging from 16 to 19 years of age. This qualification provides learners the opportunity to gain places at some of the world’s leading universities every year.
Learners use Cambridge International AS & A Levels to gain places at leading universities worldwide including the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Egypt, Jordan, South Africa, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain.
In countries such as the United States and Canada, good grades in carefully chosen Cambridge International A Level subjects can result in up to one year of university course credit.
Over 500 US universities accept Cambridge International AS & A levels, including all Ivy League universities.
Research has been carried out to explore whether Cambridge International AS & A Levels predict readiness for and continued academic success at US universities. Findings from a number of research studies suggest that the Cambridge programme compares favourably with other, more established, acceleration programmes in the US including Advanced Placement (AP) and the International Baccalaureate (IB).
With regards to Universities in the United Kingdom, Cambridge International AS & A Levels are equivalent to the AS & A Levels taken by learners in the UK, and are accepted for entrance to UK universities.
The AS & A Levels aim to develop learners’ knowledge, understanding and skills in:
• In-depth subject content
• Independent thinking
• Applying knowledge and understanding to new as well as familiar situations
• Handling and evaluating different types of information sources
• Thinking logically and presenting ordered and coherent arguments
• Making judgments, recommendations and decisions
• Presenting reasoned explanations, understanding implications and communicating
them logically and clearly
• Working and communicating in English.
The AS Level programme is a one-year course, whilst the A Level programme is a two-year course. Some subjects can be started at the AS Level and extended into the A Level programme.
Legae Academy offers a diverse range of A Level subjects. These are:
• English Language
• English Literature
• Business Studies
• Applied Information and Communication Technology (AICT)
• Computer Science
