Assessment and Grades

Cambridge International AS & A Levels have a linear structure with exams at the end of the course, which gives more time for teaching and learning. We take a ‘staged’ assessment route i.e. take the Cambridge International AS Level in one examination series and complete the final Cambridge International A Level at a subsequent series. We offer the March series at MRV. There will be regular weekly test, progression tests, formative and summative evaluations to equip students for their board assessments.

Each subject that a learner takes at Cambridge International AS & A Level receives a separate grade. The Cambridge International A Level is reported on a grade scale from A* grade, awarded for the highest level of achievement, to E, indicating the minimum required performance. There is no A* grading in the certification of Cambridge International AS Levels, which runs from grade A to grade E.
