This is your passport to enter degree programmes offered by Universities in the UK, US, Australia etc., and even professional bodies such as the ACCA.

Your Pathway to a Degree / Professional Qualification


Cambridge Outstanding Learner's Award Recipient

(Pictured above) One of Crescendo's students, Shaun Lee, won the Malaysia Prize (Highest Mark in Malaysia) for Law in his A Level exam (June 2018 sitting). 

Why Millions of Students Around the World Choose A Level 
According to the British Councilover 2 million students from 160 countries take the A Level exams every year, and here are some of the reasons why:  

Independent thinking - A Level programme focuses on producing mature thinking students, well-equipped to independently analyse, evaluate, criticise and apply broad arrays of in-depth knowledge acquired from a particular subject - A strong value preferred by top universities when recruiting students into their institution.  

Flexible - A Level subjects are covered in great breadth and depth yet flexible enough NOT to 'lock" you onto a specific field; providing you freedom to specialise at a later stage. For instance, if you're an SPM holder feeling undecided about going for a Law or Management or Accounting degree, you can always do that after completing your A Level. 

Internationally recognised The A Level qualifications are awarded by Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), a division of the Cambridge Assessment from the University of Cambridge. It is one of the very few world-class pre-university qualifications recognised by top UK universities, like, Cambridge, Oxford, London, Yale, Harvard, etc. In the US, it is recognised and accepted by over 500 universities, including all Ivy League universities, MIT & Stanford. Recognition from other countries include Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, Singapore, Egypt, Jordan, South Africa, the Netherlands, Germany and Spain. 

Better command of English - The immersion of English throughout the course drives students from non-native English speaking background to use the language in a wider setting; significantly improving their language proficiency to stay ahead in colleges or universities where success relies equally upon on rapid learning and strong communication skills.   

Why Universities Prefer A Level Students 


  
Why Study A Level at Crescendo? 
Fast-track - A Level at Crescendo can be completed in just 1-1½ years, and we have been producing successful A Level graduates within that time-frame since 2001.

Scholarships for SPM / UEC students - Merit scholarships are given for every A's you get in SPM/UEC. An RM200 per 'A' for the first 5A's and RM500 for each subsequent A's. More scholarships will be given to students with 9A's or above. 

Scholarships for A Level students entering UOL / ACCA - Crescendo's A Level students automatically receive RM3,100 scholarship each should they choose to pursue any of the prestigious UOL Degree / ACCA programmes at the College.

Experience shared 
by Crescendo students:


The A Level’s global reputation greatly improved my chances of getting into a good university. Being a former A Level science student, I found myself well ahead of my university course mates when it comes to subjects related to Natural Science.  Even if I should switch to a Social Science major, A Level has prepared me well to cope with the rigorous academic demand.

A level is very effective in preparing me for university. It develops critical thinking, independent learning, and all the skills I need to handle high volumes of academic workloads and materials with steep learning curves.
Jeon San

Currently pursuing a Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering degree programme at Nanyang Technology University.

The A Level programme made me more mature and practical in the way I solve problems. It also made me more methodical and resilient in overcoming life’s challenges. Studying far away from my hometown in Muar would have been hard if not for the strong social support and academic care given by this loving College community.

Small classes and friendly lecturers - just how I like it. Crescendo lecturers really spend time to clarify my academic doubts and provide a clear and systematic approach on how to solve a given problem. It's nice to have them around as they care about the progress of every student in their class.
