In Seychelles , the A Level qualification is offered, with examinations conducted by Cambridge International Examinations (CIE). Some subjects are unique to Seychelles or have a format, curriculum, or syllabus that is unique to Seychelles.
According to UCAS and HKEAA, the Hong Kong A-level examination has historically been benchmarked against the UK A Levels. In general, a UK A grade is broadly equivalent to a Hong Kong A-C grade. This conclusion is based mainly on the percentage of pupils achieving the respective grades in respective exams. In the UK, on average 25% of participants of each subject achieved an A grade every year, compared to the 25% A-C rate in Hong Kong – A(4%), A-B (10%), A-C (25%). According to the BBC, the percentage of students achieving an A* is about 8–10%, which essentially lies within the A-B range of their Hong Kong counterparts in respective subjects.  However, the two systems measure mastery of different sets of skills and any comparison can be subjective and therefore meaningless.
Thank you mmrred.
I am indeed proud of her - I'm always proud because of the level of effort she always puts in. I am very pleased to hear that it is paying off for her in your view. If anything, I'm sorry as a parent I don't know more about the levels.
Indeed the school have done well in their support too. They stopped her set in year 8 (the bottom set) from doing an extra language and gave over the extra time to extra literacy. It has really paid off for her as last year she gained three of the sub level gains and from her graded work this half term she appears to be a solid 5b.
I know she was upset this year not move up a set in English but, because of the way they did it, she cannot now jump on the second language because it's too late so she has to stay in the bottom set for year 9. However, she tells me today that her teacher is letting her and a friend working also at 5b to work together to extend their level within the set.
She is fine with the lack of second modern foreign language as she appreciated at the time, English was the most important and she can always do another language at evening class or college later if she wants.
Her French has remained fun as one lad in the bottom english set is french, so they always had plenty of quality extension work and oral work going on in French class.
