Develop critical thinking skills and a deep understanding of subjects

 

Based on the prestigious University of Cambridge Assessment International Examinations (CAIE) syllabus, the A Levels program is the passport for students as they begin to shape their future. Its international recognition paves the way for our students to gain entry into undergraduate degree programs such as medicine, law, engineering and more.

Since its commencement, A Levels students at UOW Malaysia KDU have gained acceptance into top universities such as University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, University of Manchester, University of London and more.

The CAIE GCE A Levels curriculum gives students the chance to build strong fundamental knowledge as they explore subjects in greater depth, develop essential cognitive and critical thinking skills, and learn the ability to apply their skills in real-world scenarios.

At UOW Malaysia KDU, we develop Cambridge learners who are confident, responsible, innovative and engaged – equipped for success in the fast-changing modern world.

What is Cambridge A Level?

The A Level, also known as the GCE Advanced Level, is a pre-university program that is based on the British education syllabus. It is administered by the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) and aims to prepare students for a university degree. In Malaysia, the A Level course takes 15 to 24 months.

This program is 100% exam based and you will be required to take a minimum of 3 to 4 subjects. You will gain in-depth knowledge on the subjects that you choose and once you pass your A Level, you can head off to university with confidence.

Why Study A Level?

The Cambridge International Examinations is the world’s largest provider of international education programs and qualifications, especially for the CIE GCE A Level program. Around the globe, it enjoys a reputation for academic excellence. It is part of the Cambridge Assessment, a department of the University of Cambridge.

While there are many programs available in Malaysia that aim to help you prepare for university, the A Level has always been one of the most popular. Here’s why:

  • It is globally recognized by universities – The A Level is known for its high standards and is recognized by universities in the UK, Australia, Singapore and the United States. 
  • A Level resources are readily available – There are plenty of study materials available on the internet such as past year papers and revision questions that will help you to prepare for exams. 
  • It lets you keep your options open – Upon the completion of the A Level, you can choose to continue your studies in a wide range of fields. Comparatively, certain pre-university programs will only enable you to continue in the field that you have chosen. Thus, the A Level is a good option if you’re not very sure what degree you want to pursue in university. 
  • It gives you in-depth knowledge – As you only take 3 to 4 subjects, you will cover your chosen subjects extensively. 
  • Fast Track into a Law Degree – The CIE GCE A Level is the fastest and most sensible route for students intending to pursue a law degree. Students will study two subjects (Business and Law) in a 1.5 years duration, as compared to one and a half to two years in the regular A Levels program.

“UOW Malaysia KDU was my first experience in a school setting, and I would say that it has given me a very good experience as I was home-schooled all the way from childhood until I finished my GCE O levels in 2017. The lecturers here are very supportive and willing to help students even outside of the classroom. Most of my lecturers explored ways to help students understand the reasoning behind the concepts. They adjusted their teaching style to adapt to how the class responded to each topic. They often thought of ways in which they could explain it to my class so that we could understand. The teachers were also competent in their subjects”

Tan Zher Nin

“I will never forget how the lecturers spent their time after class to tutor me on the areas that I had doubt in, and also responding to my WhatsApp messages at night. Besides that, my coursemates who stayed back after class for group discussions and hanging out with them, I will remember these joyous moments. These are the precious moments that I will cherish for years to come”

Kevin Tan

Masters in Corporate Law (MCL) at Cambridge

Completing my A Levels at UOW Malaysia KDU was an amazing experience. Of the college’s many qualities, the one that stood out most to me was how dedicated its lecturers were in going the extra mile for their students. This was vital for my learning as I was on the accelerated 15-month course. The support given by all the staff made UOW Malaysia KDU such a nurturing environment, which has played a great part in my academic development towards a future in law.

Alicia Loh

BA Law from the University of Cambridge

“Studying the A Levels at UOW Malaysia KDU was a great experience. The lecturers I had were knowledgeable in their subjects, passionate, and experienced in communicating their expertise to students.

Their guidance and teaching helped me to achieve three Top in the World and Top in Malaysia A Level Awards.’ Overall, UOW Malaysia KDU provided me with a conducive environment for learning, and I also met good friends whom I still keep in touch with. I look back on my time at UOW Malaysia KDU fondly”

Ooi Ken Lin

The University of Melbourne, Australia

“My UOW Malaysia KDU journey studying A-levels at Pre-U School has been nothing short of wonderful. The lecturers are incredibly supportive, and are always willing to go the extra mile to deliver an amazing classroom experience. The opportunities that I had outside the classroom were equally fantastic. I was involved in hand mime performances, organising a cultural event, and fundraising for a charity play. I could not have asked for a better college experience. Thank you, UOW Malaysia KDU’s Pre-U School!”

Jolyn Tan

University of Warwick, England

“Studying for A-levels with UOW Malaysia KDU’s Pre-U were made much easier thanks to the experience and caliber of the lecturers and the resources available to us. The dedication of the lecturers at UOW Malaysia KDU also knows no bounds. Beyond the classroom and course syllabus, they were our mentors who did not merely focus on our current goals (scoring our A-levels) but also on our future goals – getting into the universities we dreamed of and preparing us with the soft skills for university and beyond.”
