Code of Conduct


A-Level is an Advanced Level General Certificate of Education (GCE A-Level) qualification which is equivalent to a two-year intermediate level study in Nepal. Run under Cambridge International Examination (CIE) Board, a part of University of Cambridge Local Examinations Syndicate (UCLES), GCE has been offering Advanced Level qualification for more than half a century throughout the world.

Introduction by Rajesh Adhikari

I feel proud to introduce the internationally acclaimed GCE A-Levels of Cambridge Assessment International Education, UK at Chelsea International Academy. From the very first day of its inception, Chelsea has been proving itself as a premier A-level institution of the country. I feel delighted to inform that my students have been producing world class results and few of them have been awarded with the ?World Topper? award by Cambridge in different occasions. The rigor of A-Level curriculum has helped many students from Chelsea to get placement in top colleges/Universities of the world. The strong and well established alumni of Chelsea stand as a proof of the quality education that we provide here.

I take this opportunity to invite those who want to be the part of this competitive world class pre-university education at Chelsea International Academy.

I promise to provide the best resources with ample co-curricular exposures, proper guidance counseling with perfect disciplined academic environment. Come and join us and be a ?Proud Chelsea Soul?.

Why A-Level

  1. Flexibility : The structure of the A Level course allows students considerable flexibility in designing a stimulating program of study. Students have the options of choosing either A Level or AS (Advanced Subsidiary) Level courses in order to fulfill the Level requirements. Students choose the length and depth of study which matches their interests.
  2. Rigor: Demanding and stretchable courses for students. Students can also take a heavy course load for an additional challenge.
  3. International Standards:The program sets a standard education around the world.
  4. Recognition: An A Level degree is recognized by countries across the globe as meeting their requirements for entry into higher education.
 

Features of A Level

The subject content of the A Level syllabus is divided into two parts. The first part is taught in
the first year of the course and forms the basis of the AS Level qualification. Completion of
the second part in the following year fulfills the requirements for A Level.
 
Cambridge AS and A Levels examinations use a variety of assessment techniques, but
particular emphasis is placed on the use of externally-marked examination papers. Taking
examinations successfully demands a high level of academic competence and the ability to
organize knowledge and ideas to produce better written answers. Other features of the A
Level course are:
 
  • Compulsory practical work in the science subjects
  • More case studies and activities in non-science subjects
  • Opportunities for individual research in several subjects
 
AS and A Levels are based on a practical curriculum that seeks to enable students to cope
successfully with the demands of higher education. Courses are designed to encourage
students to develop an independent approach to their work. The curriculum also
encourages:
 
  • The development of practical thinking skills based on oral communication and knowledge acquisition
  • On active approach learning
  • The use of initiative and creativity in problem-solving
  • The application of skills and understanding
  • The ability to undertake individual research and to work as part of a team
  • Working and communicating in English
 
Students have been achieving remarkable sets of result in the past years. Students have also
achieved world class results in so many subjects. Majority of the passed-out students are
currently studying in colleges/universities worldwide.

Batch: A-Levels (2020/22)

Looking back a year before, I feel proud of myself for having chosen Chelsea International Academy as my high school. I choose to learn from the best and that is what I found in this institution; the best faculty members, management authorities and school staff. Amid the Covid pandemic and lockdowns, our teachers were genuinely patient and encouraging enough while teaching us with their limited facilities. The lockdown period was born academically challenging and socially tiring. However, the level of attention given to every student’s development was second to none in Chelsea International Academy. The best part of my experience has got to be the open-armed friendliness that this school perpetuates. It has helped me grow from someone who was in a shell to someone who is comfortable and proud to be myself. Every activity that I’ve been part of in this school from club events to organizing welcome program for our juniors, has had a great impact on my social skills and has made me a better person than who I was a year before. So, like every other student that graduated from this school, I am a proud Chelsea soul and am honored to be the head girl in such an institution.
