Japanese language may be removed from Britain's A levels

posted on December 31, 2015

Japanese may be removed as a foreign language subject from Britain's Advanced Levels, or A Levels, which are standard qualifications widely used by British universities to assess students' entrance eligibility.

In response, movements have been launched in the country to keep Japanese A Level.

In Britain, there is no unified university entrance exam system, and universities select enrollees based on A Level grades and other information. In usual cases, university hopefuls aged between 16 and 18 intensively study three to five subjects for A Level exams, whose scores determine whether the students can enter the universities of their choices.

A total of 222 people took the Japanese A Level exam this year.
