At Virtus, we work with the International A-Levels (IALs), a variant of the conventional A-Levels in which students are officially examined in January and May of Year 12 and Year 13.

Virtus A-Level subjects

Virtus offers 13 International A-Level subjects of which each student chooses four, based on their university goals, advice from the staff and the conclusions drawn from their bespoke Vocational Profile.

Practical components
of the curriculum

Through subject specific projects and laboratory practicals, Virtus students incorporate practical elements with a more technical approach to the study of their subjects. These improve understanding of the content and the ability to solve real-world problems through the application of theoretical knowledge.

Students with curricular interests that go beyond the scope of A-Levels can participate in academic olympics such as the Mathematical Olympiad or complete the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). The EPQ is an individual or collaborative two-year research project that helps improve the ability to gather, organise and evaluate information, while working on university-level writing.
