    Hi everybody,

    I am just a bit curious about A-level qualification, lately I have been searching for a centre that they offered practical and writting exam and I have found one in Bristol. They do offer "A-Level practical and writting exam"

    So I wonder if full A-level qualification can be taken in 1 year or not?
    On their website they said that
    "The A-Level is the 'gold standard' qualification. Candidates can complete a full A-Level or just an A/S-Level (a stand-alone qualification in its own right). There are a wide range of subjects available as A/S and A-Levels through our centre (please see our FAQ page for a list of subjects we are currently able to offer)."

    There is an exam for May/June 2017 I was asking for A-level not AS-Level and I have have found website for home-distance-learning, it is last for 2 years.

    The thing that I'm wondering is if the exam is only for 1st year? and I have to do another exam again in 2018?

    I am a bit confused right now. If anyone familiar with this situation please help!

    Thank you so much x

    You can do it all in one year if you want. You would need to be only doing that and not working otherwise you will take two years to complete the course. Split into AS and A2 in years one and two.

    You will take AS exams and learn the AS in year one. And in year two you will learn the A2 and take the A2 exams plus whatever resits you choose.
