    GCSE and predicted grades- schools will make predicted grades based on students sitting AS exam past papers. But GCSE's will be the main thing. It'll no doubt make life harder for admissions tutors. I also see the possibility of universities making heavier use of institutional admissions tests.
    When will the changes to A levels take place? Is it in 2015?

    If you enter Sixth Form in September 2015 then AS Levels are not part of the A Level qualification.

    Nope, you will do 3a2 and an AS.
    you must pick your AS BEFORE you start, so u cant drop ur worst grade like before. The AS u pick will have exams first yr, a2 only in the 2nd so they cant predict u based on as exams. Its most likely to be gcses or teachers predictions based on work etc
    When will the changes for A level take place?:confused:

    What? Labour?! This is a Conservative-Lib Dem policy, and generally when a new party comes into power, there are few major reversals in policy. This will not be one of them.

    Official AS will not, but for the average student's timetable it'll be business as usual- they'll almost certainly sit AS exams to calculate a predicted grade, it just wont count towards their A Level qualification.
    Okay... so if for example, I choose 4 subjects in year 11, now.
    I do 4 AS exams in year 12. These will not be sent to universities though.
    They predict your grade.
    I drop one subject, before results, so I can't simply drop the subject I got the lowest in.
    In year 13, I will have all the exams needed to complete the A-level. So resitting the A-level is not possible.
    Is this correct??
    Also, when we drop one subject from year 12, we still sit an AS?
    Ok, I don't fully understand....:rolleyes:
    Can someone explain this in baby steps - even smaller than already explained?!
