These two years often known in British
schools as 'the sixth form' represent the final stage of secondary
education. All students at VES complete their
GCSE/IGCSE examination at the end of year 11. Although in the past there
were several universities in the Middle East region which would accept
students with GCSE's only, these are now very few and so higher
qualifications are now required. Universities in Britain and the USA all
require a post -
16 qualification such as A levels.
At VES we offer the range of AS (Advanced Subsidiary) and A (Advanced Level)
courses. In year 12, students choose three or four 'AS' courses in their
best subjects and at the end of the year they complete the examinations.
Students may complete their secondary education at AS level or continue
year 13 to complete the A2 (full A level) which will normally be for three
of the subjects followed in year 12.
British universities all require three A level passes. American universities
normally grant remission of up to a full year of the four-year course for
with three good A level passes.
The subjects offered at AS and A levels at VES cover the most popular
courses, but the range of subjects will vary slightly from year according to
