FAQs for A Levels

A Levels, which stands for Advanced Level qualifications, are the qualifications widely taken across the UK when students reach the end of Year 13, at age 18. They can be taken at a College, Sixth Form, or online with a virtual school such as King’s InterHigh. Online A Levels give you more flexibility to revisit topics at your own pace, with access to the live lesson recordings available 24/7, as well as a library of learning resources too.

A Levels are the perfect step between GCSEs/IGCSEs and university, with most degree level courses in the UK requiring three A Levels or equivalent, sometimes specifying specific subjects too. A Levels are much more in depth than GCSEs/IGCSEs and are a chance for students to really start to specialise in the topics they are passionate about. They require more independent study time than GCSEs/IGCSEs, and students are expected to take on responsibility for their learning. However, they still have the support of their teachers, should they need a helping hand.

If you are looking to join a university after studying your A Levels online, check if there are any specific requirements for the degree courses you are looking at, so you can ensure you are taking the best subjects for you and your future.

Although A Levels are globally recognised qualifications, if you want to attend a university outside of the UK please check their requirements beforehand.

A Levels aren’t just for higher education – they can also be a great option if you are unsure what career path you want to take, and you’d like to keep your options open. A Levels teach valuable skills which can be transferred straight into a workplace too. For example, collaborative skills, time management and learning to take the initiative to ask for help when encountering a tricky topic.

Yes, you can! Most online A Levels follow a specification set by an exam board, such as AQA, Edexcel or Pearson. This means pupils who study A Levels online will achieve the same qualifications as pupils who study at school or college. Your qualifications will have the same value and will be accepted by universities.

Studying A Levels online from home provides school leavers with great flexibility. You can schedule your learning around other non-educational commitments, such as sports or the arts. Or you may prefer to study this way if you experience stress or anxiety when learning in a physical environment.

Online A Levels typically take two years to complete, with course materials and tutor support available. This covers both the AS and A Level parts of the qualification, as well as sitting exams at registered exam centres.

At King’s InterHigh, teaching hours reach up to five hours per week, divided between seven 40-minute classes. We recommend you study each of your subjects for up to three hours per week. This includes:

  • Private reading
  • Home learning
  • Revision

During exam periods, we suggest you study a little more than this. However, how much you study overall depends on your individual ability and comfort zone. What works for you may not work for other learners, and vice versa.

The cost will vary depending on the education provider and the number of subjects you wish to study. At King’s InterHigh our fees start at £495 for 1 A Level subject on a rolling contract, per half term. Usually, a student will study 3 A Levels online, which would cost £1150 per half term or £4895 for the year on an annual contract.

Each online A Level provider will have their own additional fees, which will be an additional cost to the tuition fees. Make sure you check all the information regarding fees before starting the enrollment process to avoid any surprises. You can click here to view our most up to date fees information.

When choosing where to study your A Levels online, consider the different levels of support on offer with each institution. Lower cost online A Levels can be entirely self-led, which can be a shock if you are only used to teacher support. Investing in a great virtual school will offer you all the same support through your A Levels that you had in traditional schooling, with real, qualified teachers on hand and live, timetabled lessons every week.

At King’s InterHigh, we give you the choice of a rolling contract. This offers maximum flexibility alongside your lifestyle, allowing you to cancel at any time. Alternatively, you can choose an annual contract with yearly payments to secure your place with us for the academic year.

Online A Levels are as equally respected and valued by universities as A Levels earned at a physical Sixth Form or College, and the qualification itself is also exactly the same.

Studying for your A Levels online helps to prepare you for university style learning, but still with the same level of support you would receive at a traditional Sixth Form and College. Just like you would at university, you can drop back in on past topics with 24/7 access to lesson recordings, so you can revisit topics when it comes time for revision.

However, with an online learning platform like King’s InterHigh, you still have all the 1 to 1 support of our dedicated teachers and live, timetabled lessons, where you can ask questions through the chat box. Our lessons also use smaller break out groups, for working on group tasks or discussing topics with your classmates and teacher.

Online learning can be the perfect solution for students looking to pick up an extra A Level outside of school. You can earn an extra A Level online, and you will be learning the same course content as a traditional school too. Whether you are looking to pick up a subject which your school is unable to offer, or you want to go above and beyond to impress on your university application, online schooling is the ideal solution to extend your in-person studies.

By joining an online learning platform like King’s InterHigh, you are also getting all the benefits of online learning, with access to a wealth of learning resources and lesson recordings. This means you can drop back in on topics when it comes to revision and catch up on recordings of the lessons you would otherwise have missed when attending your in-person classes.

It doesn’t matter how many A Levels you study with us; you will still get access to the same 1 to 1 teacher support and regular live lessons with our expert teachers. This means you can make sure you have a complete understanding of every one of your subjects, both in school and online.

The maximum recommended number of A Levels you can take is 5. When choosing how many A Levels to take, your priority should be getting the best grades possible from a few subjects, rather than trying to overstretch yourself with a larger number of subjects. Most students choose to study three A Levels. This is the number of subjects that most students find to be manageable, and the usual number requested by universities. Three A Level subjects will give you an in-depth knowledge across a small selection of subjects, and a great foundation of knowledge ready for university.

Different degree courses have different requirements from A Level. It is important to consider the university courses you are applying to, and which subjects they recommend selecting. Some may request a specific subject, such as Biology to be able to study Medicine, so make sure you check that your A Level choices line up with your ideal university course’s entry requirements.

However, if you feel like you can handle up to five subjects, online learning with a virtual school gives you the flexibility and resources to be able to excel, as you can revisit lesson recordings and learning materials 24/7. If you are studying extra subjects alongside those in a physical Sixth Form or College, you can catch up on any live lessons you miss during the school day in your spare time too.

UCAS points are used by universities to evaluate and compare all post-16 qualifications in the UK. Universities set a recommended number of UCAS points to ensure that students who are accepted onto each course have the academic ability and study skills to be able to excel in their degree.

Most degree courses will have the number of UCAS points they require on their websites, so be sure to check both the number of UCAS points and the subjects they require for that course, when choosing your A Level subjects. This will put you in the best position possible when it is time to start your university application.

For the academic year of 2022-23, UCAS has confirmed that there is a maximum of 56 points and a minimum of 16 points for A Levels from Grade A*-E. The number of UCAS points you get from an A Level depends on the grade you receive; the higher your grade, the more points you earn.

The full breakdown of how UCAS points correlates to the grade you receive at A Level can be seen below:

British A Levels is a two year program. It is designed by the awarding bodies to be studied over two school years so that students complete the whole course of study, embed their knowledge and hone the skills associated with their subjects ready for future study. It is also important to study over the intended duration so that students can prepare effectively for exams. Additionally, each course carries with it a set of guided learning hours that would be challenging to meet in a single year.

It is not impossible to study an A level in a single year but this should be discussed with the Head of Sixth Form and the following should be kept in mind:

  • If you have not studied a subject at A Level level before you should be joining for year 1 of each subject programme and expect to study it for two years. So, in short, if this is new study of a course you should start in year 1 of 2.
  • If you have studied a year of an A level subject elsewhere, it is certainly possible to pick up the second year of A level study with King’s InterHigh. Please check your exam board matches ours on the A Level subject pages (here).
    • If you have studied the same exam board that is a good sign, simply email your teacher when you start to let them know and ask for the content covered in the first year so you can check if you have any gaps you need to revise.
    • If you have studied a separate board you should request the subject specification from your current school you are leaving and compare it to the specification listed on the subject page of our website (here) to see the extent of any overlap. We can assist and provide the topics studied on both years of our courses to help you to make a decision – simply email the subject teacher or [email protected]
  • If a student is enrolled in only one year, we cannot teach year 1 content alongside year 2 content or provide additional sessions to students seeking to do A level in a year. However, students without prior study, can enrol on both year 1 and 2 at the same time for access to live lessons. This is not generally advisable and should only be considered in very specific circumstances and having spoken to the Head of Sixth Form. It should be noted that this route would mean paying for two subjects as each year carries a full complement of lessons. In doing this we will do our best to avoid lesson clashes, although there may be some due to cross year study. It is worth remembering the final exams at the end of year 2 would take place before the end of year 1 lessons making this route one to consider very carefully.
  • Students can have access to the previous year’s resources (not lesson recordings) to help them. They can also take the previous year’s mock exams and have feedback on these and they have access to their teacher as A level students to ask questions. For some students this is suitable. The decision to take an A level in a year however is largely one that means the student is self-teaching one year’s worth of content – it is possible but challenging. Please consider it carefully and arrange to speak to the Head of Sixth Form in advance.
