My comments were entirely within the context of the OP.(Original post by elmosandy)
And I just said except for some subjects which will be only reformed in 2017, so AS/A2 until, 2017.
My point is that it's linear.
And I was just saying to Uni12345678 that the AS Syllabus is a already put in into the A-Level specification. So doing the AS ( on top of the A2 exams, which will not be towards the final A-Level result), is just a waste of time. OP is doing AS&A2 in one year because they 'need' to, when they don't. ALRIGHT?
That's OP's problem, they're choice. I;m not saying this is a stupid decision, just pointing Op in the right direction. Lets just agree that, it's pointless, as it's linear, on top of the A-Levels as it's not going to count for A-Levels. OP thinks it's a necessity.
If you don't agree with their choice, then just say so? But just accept the fact, either way, if they do decide to do A-Levels, doing the AS is just a waste of time. And will be three times pointless and tiring work.
Don't put words in my mouth!
OP is doing three non-linear A-levels: Maths, Further Maths and French. So they plan on sitting AS & A2 exams for those subjects in Y12. (Although they have already done AS French.)
The OP has one additional subject and that indeed is linear, Physics, and yes they would sit the reformed A-level in Y12 and not need to do the AS.
You keep saying "it's linear"... but only Physics of the 4 A-levels planned by OP is linear in England.
In addition, actually OP is in Wales and therefore may be sitting WJEC which is unreformed for Physics and they will indeed need to sit AS & A2 in one year (if that's the route they want to take).
From GCSE to A level, it's all changing
