What is an AS-Level?
An AS-Level is simply the first year of a full A-Level. You study a subject for a year and can achieve an AS-Level qualification.
An AS-Level is a Level 3 qualification, meaning you will be eligible for a student visa with UKVI. If you decide to continue an AS subject into your A2 year, you must extend your course further for the full A-Level qualification. Please note that you cannot apply to extend your visa from the UK; you will need to travel home to do this.
Does an AS-Level count as an A-level?
You will sit AS exams for your subject at the end of your first year, but AS marks cannot be banked towards your final A-Level grade under the new system in England. If you continue your studies into the following year, you will sit A2 exams which will count.
Please get in touch if you have any questions regarding the process and exams.
Can I do AS-Levels at Chichester College?
No. Only Worthing College offers AS-Levels. You can study A-Levels at Chichester College, but they are delivered non-linearly, meaning you will study a mix of AS and A2 content throughout the two-year A-Level programme.
Don't worry, if you only want to study for one year, Worthing College has an excellent reputation and offers a wide choice of AS-Levels.
