The General Certificate of Secondary Education Advanced Level preparation course is one of the most renowned university entry exams in the world. A-Level courses are generally taken after two years of study. In order to qualify for many of the required entrance exams of universities around the world, GCSE A-level exams must be taken. The A-Level is split up into two parts, the AS and the A2. The AS progresses directly into the A2. The AS is comprised of two sections: Passages and Writing. The A2 consists of two sections as well: Text Analysis and Language Topics.
The Passages section has a time limit of two hours and fifteen minutes and consists of three questions. Each question is worth the same amount of points and the test taker must choose two questions to answer. Students will be required to compare and contrast texts, comment on the tone or figurative language used in passages and compose their own written work based off of a given set of instructions.
The Writing portion is comprised of six questions, split evenly among two sections, which must be completed under the time limit of one-hundred and twenty minutes. The topics of the two sections included imaginative writing and writing for an audience. The first section gives the test taker the option of choosing one of the following; write a long six-hundred to nine hundred word essay, write two shorter three hundred to four-hundred and fifty word essays, or compose a written passage using their imagination.
