The Key Stages

This is an important stage in your child’s education. It is the start of a
two-year programme of study that will culminate in examinations that
are set and marked by examination boards in the U.K
Key Stage 5 – A Levels
This is the two years of preparation towards University. A levels are much
more difficult than GCSEs and far more in depth. Pupils will only study
between 3 and 5 subjects. There is greater emphasis on independence and
analytical thinking.

What should I study?
Our pupils receive a lot of guidance about what the best options are for
them.
It is a combination of what they are best at, what they enjoy and what they
need to get into specific courses or careers.
Getting it right is important. It will determine future options, hence
working together as a school, parents and pupils is essential.

How many can I study?
The vast majority of students in the UK will study 4 AS levels (year 12) and continue with
3 A Levels in those subjects to A2 level (year 13). Most of our pupils study 4 A Levels.
For students who have a track record of academic excellence, we are able to offer the
option of studying an additional A level, hence 5 A Levels in total.
Ideally, you should be challenged by the amount of subjects you study, but not
overwhelmed.
Where you are planning to study could also influence the number of subjects you take.

ACCESO A LAS UNIVERSIDADES ESPAÑOLAS A TRAVÉS DE A-LEVELS
Se puede acceder a cualquier universidad española, pública o privada, a través de los exámenes
de A-level y mediante una correspondencia de calificaciones.
La LOE de mayo de 2006, y su subsiguiente reforma LOMCE del 9 de diciembre de 2013, dictan que los
alumnos procedentes de sistemas educativos de Estados miembros de la Unión Europea o de los otros
Estados con los que se hayan suscrito acuerdos internacionales, en régimen de reciprocidad, podrán
acceder a la Universidad española en las mismas condiciones que quienes hayan obtenido el título de
Bachiller recogido en la legislación española(…)
KING’S COLLEGE MURCIA
UNED
Los estudiantes de A - Level están legalmente exentos de realizar cualquier otra prueba de final
de bachillerato.
Con la nueva LOMCE es probable que las universidades redacten su propio examen de acceso.
La UNED es el intermediario entre las instituciones españolas y los tribunales de los exámenes
ingleses.
KING’S COLLEGE MURCIA
LOMCE
La reforma de la ley educativa en Bachillerato entrará en vigor a partir del curso 2016-17.
