Level 3 qualifications done in the UK. GCSEs are equivalent to a level 2, and degree level is equivalent to level 4. Hope this helps!

Do you get A-levels at the end of every year or just at the end of Year 12?
Is it an Average of grades from Year 1 to Year 12 or they are grades of Year 12?

You take the level 2 GCSE exams in year 11 which are graded from 9-1 with 9 being the highest mark and 1 being the lowest mark. You then move onto college to study level 3 A-levels for years 12 and 13. They updated the exams for these a few years ago and now most subjects are examined at the end of year 13 but some subjects may have an exam at the end of year 12 or some course work which is completed as an internal assessment throughout the course. In A-levels you get a grade from A*-E or a U. Most people tend to do 3 or 4 A-levels and you can chose any subject you want from the college as long as you have the required GCSE grades for the course e.g. you might need a 5 in GCSE English to study English at A-level. Hope this helps

A-levels are studied in Year 12 (when you're 16-17 years old), and Year 13 (when you're 17-18 years old). You get your A-level grades at the end of Year 13 after taking exams on the content studied in both these years.
