Is Cambridge International A Level equivalent to the UK A Level?

UK universities and many institutions overseas accept Cambridge International AS & A Levels as equivalent, grade-for-grade, with UK GCE A Levels. Our recognitions database is regularly updated with policies from institutions worldwide that welcome candidates holding Cambridge International AS & A Levels.

UK NARIC, the national agency in the UK for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills, has carried out an independent benchmarking study of Cambridge International AS & A Level and found it to be comparable to the standard of UK AS & A Level. Read the executive summary of the UK ENIC report.

Due to the United Kingdom leaving the European Union, the UK NARIC national recognition agency function was re-titled as UK ENIC on 1 March 2021, operated and managed by Ecctis Limited. From 1 March 2021, international benchmarking findings are published under the Ecctis name.
