Cambridge A Level

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 programme 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 programmes 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.
