The ordinary level examination is a milestone in every student’s life. It marks the end of a great chapter in secondary education and most importantly the O/Level qualification provides direct admission into tertiary education – the beginning of a new chapter. The period leading up to Ordinary Levels is the crucial time to take the bold steps towards your child’s future. Today a university degree after O/Levels has become the most popular choice for smart parents who want their children to have a head start in lifeand graduate at the age of 21 years.
In today’s competitive landscape ‘the early bird catches the worm’ is a call to action for parents that envision a bright future for their child which means securing admission to a world class university that offer quality education as the ultimate opportunity to have a successful future.
From O/Levelsto University
There are many options available for students completing their ordinary level examinations. Students have the option of choosing among thousands of U.S and Canadian Universities that accept O/levels and IGCSE as the entry criteria for admission and hundreds of students around the world are seizing this opportunity to gain access into higher education early on in their life instead of completing two-full years of A Levels.
Those who choose University after O Levels enjoy distinctive advantages as they graduate at a very young age. What’s more, US and Canadian education focuses on the all-round skill development of graduates, so industry-focused degree programs ensure that students are career-ready by the age of 21.
