    I have registered myself privately for sociology alevel exam in may june session 2018 and will be giving both the As and Al level papers and i came across this passage on the British council website and i was hoping someone could explain exactly what it means in regard to my subject for example.?
    This was the passage:

    If a candidate receives a Cambridge International AS Level result but was entered for a Cambridge International A-Level examination, it shows that the candidate reached the standard required for the AS papers, but not in the A-Level as a whole. Cambridge awards the candidate the result that they would have achieved if they had been entered for the Cambridge International AS-Level.

    It means that if you pass the AS paper but fail the A level paper they'll still award you the AS qualification
