WHAT DOES O-LEVEL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

GCE Ordinary Level

The O Level is a subject-based qualification conferred as part of the General Certificate of Education. It was introduced as part of British educational reform in the 1950s alongside the more in-depth and academically rigorous A-level in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. England, Wales and Northern Ireland replaced O Levels with GCSE and IGCSE exams in 1988. The Scottish equivalent was the O-grade. The O Level qualification is still awarded by Cambridge International Examinations in select locations, instead of or alongside the International General Certificate of Secondary Education qualifications. However, the Cambridge O Level has already been phased out and is no longer available in certain administrative regions, although it continues to be available in others.
