    Lol sorry, the realised the title doesn't make any sense
    Basically, could the new students entering 2015 new a levels prepare for their exams the same way we can:
    Ok,
    So you know with the current year- we have the privilege of having many past papers from over 10 years ago in the likeness well same regime year from year but as the new year would have new everything- (checked out their specimen paper and it's so different to now, basically there where more tick boxes with various answers questions where you tick the 'right' one questions) how would they use past papers to study as past papers seem very important.
    With resources, there wouldn't be many resources for the compared to now for our own exams as we have videos etc directed to our modules.

    Why I am asking this is because there's a possibility that I may choose to repeat year 12 even if I did 'well'. I feel as if this year was rushed and full of anxiety for me. But there seems to be many disadvantages.

    Surely, that's not possible if you're retaking the same year again as teachers will be teaching the new specification.

    From what I know off the specifications will actually be quite similar so you can still do past papers. The main difference in A level is that it is linear and the way papers are set out are diffrent

    Yea, I realised this too just a few moments ago but some content looks completely new as isn't this a disadvantage to have no past papers in the same format?
