Out of all the private pre-university options in Malaysia, A-Levels is arguably the most popular among students as it is a widely recognised university qualification and is accepted in more than 160 countries. Upon completing SPM, many students opt for A-Levels as their choice—but what are the entry requirements for A-Levels?
Essentially, to pursue A-Levels as a pre-u programme, you would need to pass your SPM, O-Levels, or IGCSE with at least 5 passes. It’s important to note that there are institutions which allow students to use their trial results to apply for A-Levels if the actual results are not yet available by the time of registration.

As an internationally recognised pre-university programme, A-Levels is also regarded as a great steppingstone or entry point into top universities in the world, such as the University of Oxford, the University of Cambridge, or any of the Ivy League schools like Harvard University. Different universities typically have different entry requirements of A-Levels, depending on the course you wish to pursue as well.

There are over 40 subjects available to choose from in A-Levels, and students are recommended to take up to five subjects maximum, or a minimum of 3 subjects.
Since A-Levels is 100% exam-based and acts as a preparatory course for students before advancing to the degree level, choosing the right subject combination is crucial in determining your future. It will affect the course you decide to pursue for your bachelor’s degree, and subsequently your career. For example, if you intend to do Medicine for your degree, then it is recommended for you to take Chemistry, Biology, and perhaps Physics or Mathematics for your other subject.
