Recognition and acceptance
Cambridge qualifications help you develop the knowledge, understanding and skills you need to achieve success at school, university and beyond. Cambridge International AS & A Levels are recognised by UK higher education institutions as equivalent to UK GCE AS and A Levels. They are valued by UK universities as academically rigorous qualifications that give you the skills to succeed at university and in the workplace.
Cambridge qualifications prepare you for the next stage of your educational journey. We believe that it is essential to make sure that those who hold Cambridge qualifications are well prepared to succeed in their studies at university and beyond, and are well equipped with the necessary academic skills to do this. In March 2016, UK NARIC, the national agency in the UK for the recognition and comparison of international qualifications and skills, carried out an independent evaluation of the Cambridge IGCSETM, Cambridge International AS & A Level and Cambridge AICE Diploma, in the context of the UK education system. They found the Cambridge international qualifications to be comparable to the standard of the equivalent UK qualifications.
