A-Level courses are in-depth but more focused on the individual courses than providing linkage with others. Pupils gain good expertise in the subjects they have focused on that will help with their later college-level academic work. While IB courses focus on a broader range of subjects, A-Level focuses on specialisation and in-depth study of each subject.

Many pupils and parents who opt for A-Levels are happy with the focus and accuracy provided on chosen subjects.
