Igcse/gcse and AS/A level question.Watch this thread
To do an I/GCSE takes 120 learning hours, and then you need revision hours on top.
An AS Level is 180 learning hours, and then revision hours on top.
So look at your life, are you studying other subjects? Do you have hobbies? Do you have a part time job?
Only you can answer whether or not you'll have enough time to do both in a year.
Thanks for the reply, are the 120/180 learning hours recommended or are they mandatory and you can’t sit the exam without taking that much time to learn at school. Also would I have to wait for my igcse/gcse results before I could start taking AS classes?
If you're taking AS as a private candidate, you do not need to do I/GCSEs first, however if you're wanting to study in school or college, they are unlikely to accept you for AS levels if you do not already have I/GCSEs.
In UK schools, GCSEs are taught over 2 years (ages 14-16), and then AS Levels are taught over 1 year (ages 16-17)
I get that but would I have to wait the 3 months for my igcse/gcse grades to be available (grades as in 1-9)
But for actually starting the AS course, yes. GCSE results come out in August, and then you start college in September.
Private candidates do whatever they want though. However, saying that, it's still advisable to get GCSEs out of the way first, and then study three A Levels together at the same time.
Why are you wanting to take both an IGCSE and an A Level in the same year?
