Understanding Qualification Levels
Qualifications in England are grouped into levels, from entry level to level 8.
The levels are used in education and work to compare different qualifications - they also show how one qualification can lead to another.
If you know which career you want to get into then it might be an idea to do some research into the qualifications you might need. If you want to go to university you may need certain A levels or other qualifications to get onto a degree course that will take you in the right direction.
