A note on qualifications

We’re posting a lot about online courses, and some of them have “levels” associated with them. In England, Northern Ireland and Wales, the levels are contained within the Regulated Qualifications Framework

They are as follows.

1 GCSE (grades D-G, 3-1)
2 GCSE (grades A*–C, 9-4)
3 A-level
4 Higher National Certificate
5 Higher National Diploma
6 Bachelor’s degree with honours
Non-honours bachelor’s degree
7 Master’s degree
8 Doctoral degree

It’s rare anything free would be above level three or four!

If level three or four seems scary, but the course is free, try it, everything to gain, and nothing to lose.
