The Cambridge Pre-U is a new A-Level alternative designed specifically for students who want to go on to university study. Despite its first student cohort graduating as recently as 2010, it has already gotten a lot of attention and praise from universities. Is it a good option for you?

A potentially deeper qualification than A-Levels, but less prescriptive than the IB. The Pre-U Diploma can be obtained even if certain subjects are substituted for A-Levels, or individual Pre-U subjects can be studied alongside A-Levels.

To compare other post-16 options see our curriculum guides to A-Level and IB.

The Pre-U is still a new qualification, so not many schools are offering it. Those that do, offer it alongside A-Levels. In general, the schools which offer Pre-U are some of the most competitive in the country, with most of them being independent or selective state schools. If youre interested in these schools you should see our guide to School Admissions to help, and get in touch with our Consultation Service.
