What are A-levels?

A-Level is one of the available options for pre-university that Malaysians can choose from. This course's curriculum is modelled on the UK education system. 

It's equivalent to the STPM here. It is also known as GCE Advanced Level, and it prepares you for a university degree by allowing you to study a variety of subjects in depth.

The Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) and Edexcel are the two examination boards that deliver the A-Levels in Malaysia. The Cambridge A-Level is offered at most Malaysian colleges.

In A-Level, you will typically select three or four subjects to study. Some students study extra topics in order to apply to prestigious institutions or courses.
