U.S. education system allows students to start an undergraduate degree right after O levels as O level is equivalent to a high school diploma in the U.S.A. Over the last 5 years, the number of students that have foregone the A Level and headed straight to college has skyrocketed as the job market is getting increasingly competitive. In this context, those who have gained international exposure and hands-on experience during their studies are twice as likely to be employed within three months of graduation. ANC Education, in collaboration with a number of world class universities in America, has allowed local students to follow an undergraduate degree soon after O Levels, which enables them to graduate by the age of 19/20 to land a career of their choice here in Sri Lanka or abroad.
