Edexcel a levels

Edexcel A Levels

“Edexcel A Levels offer excellent preparation for university, not only in terms of the learning material but also the level of intensity. The material I studied was highly useful to my current studies at the American University, Washington. The approaches we used to tackle analytical problems or written assignments for our A Levels still come in useful at the university level, and, in some respects, place me ahead of students who did not take A Levels.”

Lien Tran, student, The Grammar School, Nicosia, Cyprus

What do people say about BTEC?
