    I''ve heard rumours about some changes that are going to happen for those of us who are going to start A level Sept 2013.
    For example; No more re-sits, no january exams
    Does anyone which of these are actually true and if there are actually going to be any changes?
    Thanks!

    Yup, I'm in year 11 too and I am pretty sure that in 2013 we will have only june exams and only 1 resit per paper. - resits are still allowed.

    :-P

    The January exam season has been abolished after this month so you will have to take all exams in the summer. There is no limit on the number of times you can re-sit for A level but the fact that exams are available only once a year means that, in a standard 2 year course, you will only get 1 chance to re-sit AS and none to re-sit A2.
