Most students study three or four A-level subjects simultaneously for 2 years usually between ages 16–18 or 17-19 years old. The A level system is the most popular route used to apply for higher education courses at universities and other institutions offering Higher Education courses in the UK and many such universities base their conditional admissions offers on a student’s predicted A-level grades. The A levels are also recognised internationally.
