Overview

Cambridge Assessment International Education AS and A Levels are internationally benchmarked qualifications providing exceptional preparation for the commencement of university education.

Delivered at The British Model College (BMC), The Advanced Level is the ‘gold standard’ of Cambridge International Examination qualifications. Students receive a qualification equivalent to that granted in the UK, and which is accepted universally as an entry requirement for universities, including those in Nepal.

Studying for the A Levels qualification is rigorous and demands a high academic standard of achievement. At BMC we offer highly flexible subject combinations and students can choose from a wide choice of subjects - that suit their interests and aptitude. 

The A Levels programme demands a multi-dimensional approach, which includes providing evidence of in-depth subject knowledge and understanding; developing an ability to think logically; presenting reasoned explanations; applying theoretical knowledge; and communicating ideas and feelings in a clear and logical manner.

About the British Model College

Located in the heart of the nation’s capital, the British Model College (BMC) is arguably the best, most well-equipped, and cutting-edge A Level College in the country. 

Established in 2013, BMC offers prestigious Cambridge Assessment International Education A-Level courses. We uphold a personalised approach to education where each student’s work is carefully monitored and evaluated to help ensure their success.

Subject combinations offered at this College prepare students to enter engineering and medical colleges, or set students up in the pursuit of higher education in the liberal arts or pure science; as well as computer studies, accountancy, and management faculties. The Advanced Subsidiary Level General Paper remains a compulsory subject, irrespective of the group of three principal subjects.

We are fully dedicated to providing the highest level of education which is demonstrated by the provision of seasoned faculty members, world-class infrastructure, and the friendly, nurturing educational environment that we provide for our students.

The College is registered with Cambridge Assessment International Education as Centre Number NP 744 and has received approval from the Ministry of Education, Government of Nepal.
