Cambridge International Assessments

Cambridge International A Level is typically a two-year course, and Cambridge International AS Level is typically one year.


Assessment options

Your learners can choose from a range of assessment options to gain Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications:

We hold Cambridge International AS & A Level examination series twice a year, in June and November. Results are issued in August and January.

* The staged assessment route is not possible in all subjects. The outcomes awarded for Cambridge International AS Level language syllabuses cannot be carried forward to Cambridge International A Level.

Reporting achievement

Each subject that a learner takes receives a separate grade.

Grades are benchmarked using internationally recognised grades, which have clear guidelines to explain the standards of achievement.

The Cambridge International A Level is reported on a grade scale from A* (highest) to E (minimum required performance). There is no A* grade for Cambridge International AS Levels, which run from grade A to E.

We also provide worldwide results statistics for Cambridge International AS & A Level qualifications.
