Why choose this specification?

Designed for the global learner, this qualification includes specific international content, making it highly relevant to students across the world.

Created in consultation with world-leading Higher Education Institutions, this new qualification provides students with access to local and international universities. 

This qualification is 100% externally assessed and has a modular structure.

Resources and training programmes will be available to support you to deliver this new qualification with confidence from September 2016 onwards.

As a result of ongoing reform of GCE A levels in consultation with Ofqual (the regulator of qualifications, assessments and examinations in England), all UK Awarding Bodies have withdrawn the option of Applied GCE A levels for learners. As a result, the final teaching date for these qualifications was September 2015, with final certification for two-year courses in June 2017, further information is available here.  

In response to this, we have developed an Edexcel IAL Applied ICT qualification, for first teaching in September 2016, available to schools and learners outside of the UK. Edexcel GCE A level and IAL Applied ICT qualifications contain the same unit content and assessments. The only difference between the two qualifications is the specification cover design and layout. 

The Edexcel 2016 IAL Applied ICT qualification has a new entry model where-by unit entries and qualification cash-in codes are required. The entry model is in-line with other IAL subject qualification entries. Unit assessment will be available in June only for students outside of the UK.
