From age 16 to 18, we focus on preparing students for university. The curriculum follows A Level courses in the British curriculum and Pruebas de Competencia Específica (PCE) courses in the Spanish curriculum.
At this level (Key Stage 5), students select which subjects to study according to their interests, their performance in their IGCSEs and the academic area they are considering studying at university.
At Elian's British School of La Nucía, we offer the following A Level subjects (British curriculum):
Year 12 Students normally study for 3 or 4 AS Level courses, as well as studying Spanish Language (British curriculum).
Year 13 Students continue with their British curriculum subjects to complete the A Level course.
Year 12 Students take AS Level exams in 3 or 4 subjects (British curriculum).
Year 13 Students complete the full A Level course by taking exams in 3 or 4 subjects and Spanish Language (British curriculum).
Students take exams in two or three subjects in the strands mentioned above (Spanish curriculum) for specific preparation for entry into Spanish universities. Pruebas de Competencia Específica (PCE) exams are taken at the UNED centre in Alicante. University By following the British curriculum and successfully completing A levels, our students are well prepared for future study at university. Our students typically go to universities in Spain and other parts of Europe, the UK, and the USA.
