Qualifications at the same level sometimes cover different amounts of the same subject.
Most qualifications have a difficulty level. The higher the level, the more difficult the qualification is.

Research shows that when students are engaged and in a safe supportive learning environment, they have better outcomes. Conversely, current data also suggests that violence, bullying, and other problems that take place in our schools, college campuses, and communities disrupt the classroom and create a hostile learning environment that poorly affects academic achievement.
No matter the education level– from Pre-K to higher education –students need safe supportive learning environments to succeed.
