Pre A Level

Our Pre A Level course is a great way to improve your English level whilst developing some foundation knowledge in academic subjects


The St Andrew’s College, Cambridge Pre A Level course prepares students for A Level or Foundation Courses. It offers a combination of English language training and IELTS exam preparation with some academic preparation in Maths and Sciences. Students can choose to study one, two or three terms. The Pre A level Course is an alternative to studying GCSEs. Depending on your English level, this could be a faster route to the academic course you want to study.

Students will follow the GCSE syllabus in Maths and Sciences. Students will study Biology, Chemistry and Physics as part of the science preparation. They are not required to take exams at the end of the course unless wishing to do so. Students can progress to our A Level and Foundation courses via our internal tests. This means that it is less pressurised than a GCSE course.
