Advanced Subsidiary Level and Advanced level from Cambridge International Examinations, in short, AS/A levels are recognized and highly valued by universities and employers across the globe.

The skills such as critical reasoning, research, teamwork, and argumentation are emphasized in this program along with the subject knowledge which is laid down as fundamentals.
A levels are taken over 2 years: the first year is called an AS, or advanced subsidiary level. This is equal to half an A level. The second year is called an A, or advanced level. It’s also sometimes referred to as an A2 and is equal to a full A level qualification. AS levels can be taken as a stand-alone qualification, or as the first part of an A level course.
