In Years 12 and 13 students study for A Level qualifications in specific subjects. These are internationally recognised qualifications which follow a syllabus set by an exam board in the UK. This board also write and mark the final examinations which take place in May and June every year. Passing grades are awarded in the range A* to E.
In most subjects students will sit an examination for an AS Level qualification in year 12 and then the final A Level examination in year 13. Examinations in some subjects such as chemistry or drama also include practical work which counts towards the final grade. Most students will take three or four A Level courses.
Currently BVIS offers A levels in Art, Biology, Business Studies, Chemistry, Economics, English Literature, Geography, History, Maths, Music, Physical Education (PE) and Physics.
Additional subjects may be offered in the future.
