The truth about A Levels

You may have heard some rumours that say A Levels are only good for entry to UK universities. This is simply untrue.


A Levels are the gold standard for entry into UK universities – but they are also globally accepted. Students from the UK use their A Level results to attend universities around the world. Likewise, schools in Thailand that offer A Levels have been sending students to universities worldwide for decades, and this includes the most prestigious university establishments.


In fact, at some US and Canadian universities, certain A Level courses are so highly regarded that students can gain one year of university credit by virtue of their A Level studies at school.


To learn more about A Level qualifications for university entry, you can read this article on the Cambridge Assessment International Education website.


Rugby School Thailand is fully accredited with the three international A Level examination boards – Cambridge Assessment International; Pearson Edexcel; and OxfordAQA. Rugby School Thailand is an examination centre for each of these boards. Our first examinations occurred in January, 2019.
