    oh ok thats a relief but along with other A2 subjects i am really scared
    Yeah I think with information heavy subjects it will be harder. What i've heard though is that you won't have all of the content covered in the exams, so for maths C1 to C4 will be one 2 and a half paper.

    The new AS will still have a UCAS points value whoever wins the next election. Labour have "said" they will delay any implementation of the new A levels meaning there would be no change. Assuming the new system is introduced, UCAS have proposed that from 2017 the value of an AS should decrease from 50% of a full A level to 40%. This proposal has not been confirmed.

    The way my school is running it is that students pick either 3 or 4 A levels and take all the exams for them at the end of year 13. It isn't running AS levels at all any more, as they think it's unnecessary for us to take AS levels that won't count in year 13 so we should just concentrate on getting full A levels. Some colleges will still make you take AS though.

    The Universities will resort to the systems they developed and perfected between the introduction of A-Levels originally and the full modularisatiopn process.
