Two AS Levels are available which could be used for different purposes: for interim assessment in reading/writing and essay, and in literature; for final assessment of students who wish to progress beyond IGCSE, but whose A Levels are in other subject areas. To accommodate the fact that AS Level students are taking A Level components, the grade boundaries will be set lower than for A Level students. What this AS Level does not do, however, is contribute to the A Level assessment.
Please note that AS Level Literature is now only available in a small number of syllabuses – (8670) French Literature, (8673) Spanish Literature (both June and November); (8672) Portuguese Literature (June only), (8675) Hindi Literature (November only). AS Level Language is always available in series when the full A level runs.
