The Benefits

Taking International AS and A Level Accounting will enable students to:
  • become experienced in a wide range of technical and social tools
  • develop skills like time management, communication and digital literacy


Minimum entry requirements

To successfully study Cambridge International AS and A Level with us, students need to have attained:
  • a grade C (or grade 4) and above in IGCSE English and Mathematics (or the equivalent in an internationally recognised qualification).
  • A Cambridge O Level or IGCSE in Accounting or equivalent is also an advantage. An interest in finance and business operations is also essential.
It is the school’s responsibility to ensure that the student has met these minimum entry requirements. Pamoja Taught courses and Pamoja teachers assume that these minimum entry requirements have been met and the student therefore has the necessary foundational knowledge and ability to work at the pace required by the course.

Activities and assessments

The course includes the following activities: readings and case studies on real accounting situations, quizzes, self-assessments and marked written assignments. Teachers will review and grade assignments during the course. There are also unit discussions to support students with each topic. The final examination consists of three externally-assessed papers:
  • Paper 1—1 hour, 30% AS/15% AL, multiple choice questions
  • Paper 2—1 hour 30 minutes, 70% AS/35% AL, structured questions
  • Paper 3—3 hours, 50% AL, two sections with structured questions 

Advice from our teachers

In order to succeed in International AS and A Level Accounting, we recommend students set aside ten to fifteen hours a week to study. It is important that students regularly keep up with the readings and the course activities in a timely manner. And that they contact their Pamoja teacher if they fall behind or need help with assignments.
