What is an A level anyway?

I have always wondered, but never actually bothered finding out![/quote:19c952ebc9]
Are you serious?? You’re the first person I’ve met in western Europe not to know what the A Levels are!

English/northern ireland version of the leaving cert? More in-depth but do less subjects.
Do Wales do A-levels?
Scotland does something different, highers and advanced highers.[/quote:19c952ebc9]
Indeed. England and Northern Ireland use the A Level system. Wales use the Welsh baccalaureate to embrace the education system that the EU would like us all to use, and Scotland use the highers just to be plain difficult.
