1. Group question 1

  • What are A-Levels?

    Advanced Levels or A-Levels are subject-based qualifications that British students aged 16 or older must get if they plan to enter university or just want to gain better knowledge in a particular study area or profession they’re into. A-Level courses are provided by Sixth Form Colleges and Further Education Colleges. In essence, these two institutions are the same except that Further Education Colleges operate separately from high schools, offer a wider range of courses and qualifications, plus ensure a different learning environment compared to high schools. A-Levels are divided into two stages: AS Level – is taken by students aged 16 to 17 A2 Level – is taken by students aged 17 to 18 At the end of each stage, you sit for a certain examination. To move in the upper stages of education you must necessarily pass these examinations. Basically, AS-Level marks the first year of A-Levels where students can study for an “extra” subject. Most students achieve the AS qualification in the first year so they can fully concentrate on studying for their full A Levels in the second year. You can sit for all of your A-Level subjects, but under the new rules in the education system in England, your grades in AS Level won’t count in the total grade taken at the end of your full A-Levels.

  • How many subjects I’m allowed to take in A-Levels?

    From an academic perspective, A-Levels are highly demanding compared to high school education. In addition, getting A-Levels is not a complete success because your scores matter too. That in mind, despite that you’re free to take as many as you want we recommend you to focus only on three of them (eventually 5 if you’re convinced you can handle). If you already have a plan in your mind for registering a particular university contact them to get information as per how many A-Levels and what scores they ask for. Always keep in mind that UK universities are highly competitive and A-Levels play an important role in your admission. Commonly they search for applicants who have at least three A-Levels with top grades in subjects closely related to their aimed university course. If you take more than three, you risk to limit your academic potential and scoring less. Some students find it challenging to choose which subjects to take on their A-Levels. This is a common concern for those who still haven’t made up their mind about their future. If you know what do you want to university check what subjects are required and pay your whole attention to those subjects. For example, if you want to study biology at university you can get biology, chemistry and math as your A-levels. On the other hand, if you haven’t found yet what do you really want to study don’t get discouraged because A-Levels are a good opportunity to have your options open. If you need advice, ask your high school teachers and they may give an idea of what subjects you seem to be particularly talented. Learn more at: https://www.studying-in-uk.org/a-levels-in-uk/

  • Which are the most difficult subjects in A-level?

    It is always important to keep in mind that A-Levels are tough and you need to offer your best to succeed. That said, every subject is hard in A-Levels but it all comes down to your learning style and your hard work. However, most students put natural sciences like math and chemistry at the top of the list. Psychology and foreign languages are also difficult. There is a particular list of A-Levels which are most frequently required from universities in the UK. These subjects are known by a common name as “facilitating subjects”. The followings are just some of these facilitating subjects: Mathematics English Biology Physics Chemistry History Geography There are subjects that are taught in A-Levels but are not included in this list because universities rarely require them.

  • Can I go to university without A levels?

    This is one of the most common questions students make. The answer is yes, you can go to university in UK without A-Levels. However, note that UK universities are very competitive therefore an equivalent academic qualification is a necessity. Fortunately, there are several of them accepted from universities. Surely if you had studied in Scotland you must have taken the Highers which are the equivalent of A-Levels, therefore you’re eligible to apply for a university in UK. Also, many universities in UK take consideration of recognized international qualification, with International Baccalaureate as a typical example of this. In particular circumstances, some universities may also consider vocational qualifications, like BTEC. Another opportunity is applying for a four-year degree program also known as an integrated degree offered from a university where the first year is sort of a preparatory course for your regular studies. Furthermore, if you’re an adult who has been out of school ever-since high school graduation you can still continue your higher education. Many universities in UK offer Access to Higher Education diplomas, designed to prepare for university those people who have been out of education for a while. Keep in mind that whether you can or cannot study in UK without A-Levels depends entirely on the university you’re applying to. That said, we suggest you reach them out before making a decision to submit an application. Learn more at: https://www.studying-in-uk.org/a-levels-in-uk/

  • What's the benefits of online classrooms?

    * Online classrooms have a host of benefits that make them increasingly desirable places to learn. Many learners are naturally more comfortable and at ease in the surroundings of their own home. * Many pupils in a classroom cannot help but find that social pressures and interests, inherent in a physical space, can often take precedence over their natural curiosity to learn and ability to focus on the subject. * In an online classroom, social pressures and interests, legitimate as they may be, can be rested for the benefit of learning without disruption or disturbance from peers. * Lessons can be accessed anywhere, with an internet connection, providing ultimate flexibility in terms of whatever locations are available or desired. * Our experienced teaching staff lead live real-time lessons where interaction is positively encouraged. Individual students are free to ask questions, challenge and debate the ideas and issues discussed and, in doing so, find their voice as independent autonomous individuals. * All lessons are recorded and can be accessed by students and parents, at whatever point, enabling key learning objectives in each subject area to be revised and revisited as many times as is necessary. There are a bank of resources available in each subject area that can also be accessed at any point to assist learning and facilitate independent revision.

  • Can I have detailed information about Key Stage 2 and Key Stage 3?

    In Key Stage 2, learners from 9 years of age can begin their journey with EV Academy and take opportunity to develop themselves as all-round learners, adept in self-expression and creativity as well as enlarging their scope and experience in the more familiar areas of maths and sciences. In Key Stage 3, learners focus on preparing the groundwork for pupils to feel equipped to take on the challenge and demands of the IGCSE, which they begin in Years 10 & 11. Each of the subject syllabuses and accompanying schemes of work are tailored to give students a thorough grounding in the fundamental aspects within each of the core subjects. Work, year-on-year, on the most foundational and important skills are revisited and layered with increasingly complexity each time, finally building within the individual learners, a solid base of understanding with which to meet the requirements of the IGCSE level.

  • How does the EV Academy conduct learning activities in the classroom?

    Students will study online 4 days of the week with 3 sessions each day. Each session is 45 minutes long with a 15-minute break between each one. From 12:30 pm UK time. Learning tools: Computers, phones, headsets with microphone, good internet connection and easy typing, preferably devices with a larger screen to protect the eyes of children.

  • What extracurricular activities are offered to students?

    Parent’s Events: In addition to the regular school activities, we also organise activities in any countries where we have many students who are studying with EV Academy. These activities are aimed at assisting parents to build a healthy community and participate in their children's learning journey. Student’s Events: To maximise the application of what is learned to real life, we encourage students to attend extracurricular events and activities. Events and contests will give students the opportunity to express themselves and connect with their peers in a healthy way. This is also an opportunity for teachers to discover hidden talents, and evaluate the results of their teaching through the practical projects of the students. ​ Community Activity: The organisation of volunteer activities helps students nurture and improve the sense of social responsibility. We consider this a very important part of our educational activities. In the long term, we want to go through these activities to introduce students to the happy experiences of helping the community. Naturally, our students are aware of the importance of balance, which contributes to their general happiness and well-being.
