What are AS/A2 and A-Levels in Chinese?   A-Level Chinese or the GCE features at level 3 of the National Qualifications Framework.  The GCE is formed from the Advanced Subsidiary Level (AS) and the Advanced Level (A2) with exams for AS taken in the first year, followed by A2 the next.  The Advanced Subsidiary level provides a logical progression from GCSE offering discrete skill-specific testing and a focus on language.   The A2 level offers a realistic progression from Advanced Subsidiary that it rewards advanced research/reading skills and acknowledges the importance of knowledge and understanding of Chinese-language culture. A2 also facilitates literary study
