The educational context

A-level‘ means ‘Advanced Level’. Typically, more academic students in England and Wales spend their last two years at school, before university, taking three A-level courses. (Some take one or even two more, some take fewer.) Consequently our proposed course would occupy about a third of the teaching over two years.
