    Since A levels are changing next year, would it still be possible for students to study an one AS subject along with their other A2 subjects in their second years for 2016? In the new A levels students would have both AS and A2 exams in their second years meaning that no exams would take place for them during their first years. However I am already an a level student who is currently in the older a level system but I want to one AS in my second year in 2016.

    Speak to your sixth form, but as AS levels will still exist, I don't see why that would be a problem. Which AS do you want to sit?

    Really, I'm quite surprised. I thought no exams would be available as candidates would have two years for new sets of exams?

    Yea, they seem unsure to be frank. I keep on receiving mixed answers from various teachers. It's between AS Psychology and Biology depending on circumstances as no one has confirmed anything yet in school.

    The AS exams have to be offered after a year for people only taking the AS.
