Definition of the noun O-Level

What does O-Level mean as a name of something?


  1. A subject-based qualification superseded in England by GCSEs, but still available as an international examination.


O-level a.k.a. O Level: 'O' Level were a British, late 1970s, punk rock, post punk and indie band, founded in 1976 by Ed Ball with friends John and Gerard Bennett. The group's name refers to the 'O'-Level of the British General Certificate of Education.


O-level a.k.a. 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. Those three jurisdictions replaced O Levels gradually with General Certificate of Secondary Education and International General Certificate of Secondary Education exams over time. The Scottish equivalent was the O-grade. The O Level qualification is still awarded by CIE Cambridge International Examinations, the international counterpart of the British examination Board OCR, in select locations, instead of or alongside the International General Certificate of Secondary Education qualifications. Both CIE and OCR have Cambridge Assessment as their parent organization. The Cambridge O Level has already been phased out, however, and is no longer available in certain administrative regions.
