from what i understand as level is just one year ie its one year of study of a subject in yr12, as opposed to a-levels which are a two year study in yr12 and yr13.i think as-level basically covers what you would cover in your first year of college/sixth form (1st year a-level books soemtimes labelled as-level/1st year a level). some people take an as level and then drop it so that they don't take it as a full a level continuing into yr 13. as level exams then are taken at the end of yr12 (first year of college), and a level exams at the end of yr13 after two years of study (as far i as i father)

yes, a level is essentially a continuation of as level. you achieve either an as level in a subject or an a level in that same subject

well then over summer just review your gcse knowledge, maybe get one of those head start to a-level books to help with this, and absolutely have a look at the first as level/first year content for your subjects to get a bit of a grasp of it all.
