职业生涯 advice is always available from the 国家职业服务中心 - see flyer below.


Remember, you now have to stay in some sort of education or training until your 18th birthday. But you do have a number of options for the form this can take. This page helps to explain those options. There are also some very useful downloads at the bottom of the page, 包括海伦·科尔(澳门星际网站之前的职业顾问)在2018年7月的小组会议上为11年级学生做的演讲.


The most popular option is to continue your studies into 一个水平. You can do this at Her原理图el or at another 原理图ool with a sixth form or a sixth form college.  This provides you with the best basis to access university courses, although it's not the only way.

经验丰富的顾问Ray Le Tarouilly就如何以及为什么选择A - level星际游戏平台给出了一些宝贵的建议:

如果你是11年级的学生, 你很可能已经开始思考完成普通中等教育证书考试后要做什么. 这是你人生中第一次, you will have a choice over where you will go and what you will study, 再加上一点思考和细心, you can make the right decisions and avoid making mistakes over your choices. 你们可能知道, the 政府 requires that all young people stay in some sort of learning until age 18. This does not mean that you have to stay on at 原理图ool, but it does mean that you will need to take one of the following options:

  • 一个全日制的大学名额
  • A place at a 原理图ool sixth form full time
  • An apprenticeship (paid job with training) of at least 30 hours per week
  • 每周至少出勤20小时的工作或志愿工作,包括获得资格证书的认可教育或培训

One of the qualification pathways you may be considering is whether to take A levels. These are qualifications taken at 原理图ools that have a sixth form and at many colleges. GCE(普通教育证书)高级(A)水平考试自20世纪50年代初就存在了,所以你的祖父母和曾祖父母可能都参加过.


A级考试并不为你的就业提供培训或准备,但它受到雇主的尊重,仍然是进入大学的标准入学资格. 通过参加A级考试所培养的技能是很有价值的,例如历史或英国文学培养了研究信息和呈现结构良好、有争议的书面作品的技能. 数学可以培养学生解决问题和推理的能力,这些都是雇主认为求职者应该具备的品质. 科学s develop the ability to analyse and present information effectively and so on.


A levels are graded either entirely or mostly by exams at the end of the course, 这取决于主题, with the top grade possible being an A* and the lowest pass an E grade. “U” grade stands for unclassified which is a fail. A levels are not changing to number grades as with GCSE.

They are much more demanding than GCSEs; rather than simply repeating information, 与GCSE相比,你将被要求更多地表达自己的想法,并更深入地学习学科. 文章将会更长,并且需要显示出比在GCSE中遇到的更深入的理解.

被允许学习A级星际游戏平台, you will need at least 5 GCSEs grade C/new grade 5 including 英语 language and mathematics, 对于A级的某些科目,你至少需要在GCSE中获得B级/新的6级,例如如果打算学习一门语言, 科学或数学达到A级水平. Check college and sixth form websites or prospecti as they can vary.

Three, sometimes four subjects only are studied.

如果你对未来的工作或大学学习不确定,那么A - level考试可以为你争取一些时间, 但重要的是要选择适合你的科目,并结合起来,使你以后的选择最大化.

Reasons for choosing A levels should be based on the following:

  • That you have the ABILITY to take them. 例如, subjects such as sociology or 政府 & politics may be new to you, but you need good 英语 skills as they are essay based.
  • 你对他们感兴趣. A levels will require you to do a LOT more private study, reading etc outside of lessons. Having a passion for a subject will help!
  • That they are needed for the career or university course you want to do. 例如, at least two sciences (usually chemistry and biology) will be required for entry to medicine, dentistry or veterinary science at university.

我应该选什么样的A - Levels星际游戏平台?

Entrance requirements for some university degree courses can be high, so grades achieved at A level can be essential. 在我多年的职业指导工作中,我经常遇到的一个争论是,学生是否应该学习三门科学来进入医学领域. Taking three sciences will potentially open all universities to you, but the majority are happy to accept two, with the third subject being something different. ONLY take three sciences if you are particularly good at them! If, 例如, you are very strong in the life sciences (chemistry and biology), also very good at history but weaker in physics, 你最好选择历史.


Having a broader skillset which can be gained from taking a non-science subject can be a good thing, 例如,通过学习历史,你会培养出很强的书面沟通能力,这在写大学作业时是非常宝贵的.

进入医学界, things that you do OUTSIDE of A level study are also very important, 例如 work experience with vulnerable people, 定期浏览GMC(普通医学委员会)等网站,以了解最新的医学问题,并参加会议 Medlink星际游戏平台 to enhance your understanding of medicine as a career.

If you are focused on a business-based career, it can be tempting to choose all business type A levels such as business studies, 经济与会计. 这是不必要的, 事实上,大学往往更喜欢获得商科学位的学生拥有更广泛的技能.

A language A level is particularly useful for entry to business courses, as sciences and mathematics develop analytical and problem solving skills, 英语 literature or language develop written communication skills, geography strengthens data presentation and analytical skills and so on.

如果你喜欢写作的话, three verbally based subjects can be an attractive proposition, 比如历史, 政府 & 政治学与社会学. But remember that there will be a LOT of reading and essay writing!

The age old nutshell is whether to take A level law for entry to a law degree. If I had been paid £5 for each time I have been asked this question I would be very wealthy! 对这个问题的直接回答是,在大学里学习这一学科没有必要参加A级法律星际游戏平台.


Returning to the question of facilitating subjects, if you take at least two from the following list, 一般来说,你会有更好的机会进入更具竞争力的大学和/或学位星际游戏平台. 辅助科目为:-生物-化学-英国文学-高等数学-地理-历史-数学-现代外语或古典语言-物理.

However, do not lose sight of your aims. 例如, if you intend going into an art/design based degree, then you will need to take a subject such as art & design, likewise music if you intend taking a degree in this subject.
