What our students say
"I studied two A' levels with ICS to help me get to university - it was convenient for me because my school didn't offer courses I wanted to do and I'm not tied down to a rigid way of studying. The textbooks were easy to find, and the coursework is very self-explanatory." Leon Williams
Whether your goal is to go on to Higher Education or you are keen to make a start in your chosen career, studying A Levels with ICS will help make these choices available to you in the future.
