Abstract

Three out of four A-Level students will enter higher education perhaps with an assumption that the grades that defined their A-Level experience will ensure they are intellectually prepared and that they now possess a broad range of skills that will be further stimulated within higher education. This paper seeks to critically address this assumption. It hopes to contribute to the debate about whether A-Levels adequately prepare students with the range of skills that are developed at university. This is a question that has critical implications for teaching and learning within HE, students and education policy-makers.
