A' Levels (AS/A2)

The Changing Status of A Levels
 
In 2014, the Government announced alterations to A levels which will impact students who aim to sit their examinations from June 2017 onwards. From 2017, candidates are required to take both the AS and the A2 examinations in the same sitting to achieve an A level grade.
 
The key changes to A level
 
A levels will be fully linear, with students sitting their exams at the end of the two-year course. From January 2014, there is no longer a January assessment window. This change applies to current A levels as well as the new ones in development.
 
AS levels will be stand-alone qualifications and will no longer contribute to an A level grade. Their purpose will be to encourage curriculum breadth and they will remain broadly at their current standard. The AS level may be designed to be co-taught with the first year of the A level.
 
Another key change that has been made under the new UCAS Tariff is to the points allocated to the AS qualification. Under the current Tariff it has points worth 50% of an A level but under the new Tariff it is allocated points worth 40% of an A level. This would obviously have repercussions for students applying to university.
 
New syllabuses are being approved. Please see our New A' Levels 2015 for further information. These will be taught in September 2015 with the first exams in June 2017. If a student enrols on the current version of A' Levels, They will be required to sit the exams in June 2016 and support will be only for that period.
