Advanced General Certificate of Education (AGCE) is a vocational qualification that replaced the AVCE in September 2005. The modular structure of each course available is also different from that of the AVCE. This course is available through many subjects that was once run under the AVCE for example, Information and Communication Technology and Health and Social Care.
The real name for the qualification is Applied GCE or as an example "GCE A Level in Applied ICT". The course is available in many schools and further education colleges and comes as three different forms - AS GCE, AGCE Single Award and AGCE Double Award.
