Brief of IGCSE and A-level


IGCSE offers a wide range of subjects to choose, and students at most international schools usually complete at least five subjects within two years. At the end of the two-year curriculum, Cambridge strictly adheres to a global timetable to conduct the test as an assessment of student performance.

Students enter A-level studies after passing the IGCSE in-school assessment of their chosen subjects, organized by International Assessment of Cambridge University while A-level courses take two years of AS and A2.


Universities evaluate students' applications in several ways. The academical performance of students on IGCSE and AS would be properly measured to predict whether they will be able to complete their studies in A2 and gain admission to the university. Adcote (Shanghai) offers totally 26 courses of IGCSE & A-Level, which is one of the TOP A-level schools that offer most IGCSE & A-level courses in China, so as to maximize students' choice of major in the future.
