A post-GCSE academic course in England and Wales offered at most Secondary School Sixth Forms, some FE Colleges and all Sixth Form Colleges.more...
Generally, the requirement to study at A-Level depends on the school. The most common requirement is five GCSE's at grade C-A*, sometimes including both English and Maths, but some Sixth Forms/Colleges will let you resit them if you didn't manage to get at least a C in them. Sixth Form's that are part of prestigious private schools or grammar schools generally require more/better grades, such as B's in Maths and English, two A's, and a string of B's and C's.
The A in A-Level stands for 'Advanced'-Level, and so it should. A-Levels are not neccessarily confusing or hard, but they are a LOT more work than GCSE's, and in a shorter space of time. The first half of the A-Level is the Advanced Subsidery or AS-Level, the second year is Advanced 2 or A2-Level, you complete both to get the full A-Levels.
The most common amount of A-Levels taken per person is either three (for the average students) or four (for smart students). However, some people actually pic even more, or less.
The average time spent doing A-Levels is two years, but some people end up doing three years for various reasons, such as failing a year, wanting to do extra AS's, or wanting to change subjects.
Generally after A-Levels, people go on to study at University or a skills/trade school or college.

A form of torture which is supposedly 'optional' for any uk 16-18 year old. However it is most likely said 16-18 year olds are forced, sorry, 'persuaded' into sitting these exams which they are clearly going to fail. Said failed exams are then followed by hundreds of retake's until finally said teenager can get high enough grades to get into any uni which will take them after which they will be - you guessed it - forced to do more coursework, sit more exams, and so on and so forth through life.
Person 1: What the hell are A levels?
Person 2: You mean you werent forced into them by your parents/teachers/both?
Person 1: Oh no, I'm not 16 yet, but believe me when I am, I will be forced to take them
Person 2: That blows.
Person 1: Yup
(and so the boring conversation continues)
The A-levels (Advanced Level Examinations) is a series of exams that one will take at the age of 18.
Numerous students choose to take this exam after sitting for the O-levels (Ordinary Level Examinations), which tends to make others wonder why one would want to experience this suffering yet again at an advanced level.
Prior to the A-Levels, one will spend two years preparing for the examinations at a Junior College. During this period of time, the student will go through lectures, tutorials and various phases of regret.
It is commonplace for many students to believe that taking the A-levels was the biggest mistake of their life, in which they are correct.
Person 1: What are you studying for?
Person 2: My A-Levels.
Person 1: What is that?
Person 2: The biggest mistake of my life.
