The fee structure at TCS varies with each of our campuses and is related to the size, facilities and location of the campus. So once you have chosen an A Level Campus near you, we then recommend you contact the school directly here where the fee applicable at that campus will be described. It is important to remember that at some campuses there are additional costs for use of laboratories and at all campuses for the cost of the A Level exams and books.
