Hi, from what I know A levels are becoming fully linear from September 2015. Currently, I am taking Maths (Edexcel), Economics (AQA) and Government & Politics (Edexcel). Since I am thinking of retaking my AS year will the spec also be very different from what i learned? Will only my economics exam be all done in one go at the end of A2 (4 units)? Will Maths and Politics exam stay the same. As in exams on 2 units on both subjects in AS and A2?Does this mean all of the AS and A2 exams will be sat in the end of A2? Is it linear for particular subjects also, for me is only Economics Linear and the rest Modulaur? How will we prepare for the exams when there are no past papers for the new spec- will grades differ from previous years?

Sorry for the ridiculous amount of questions....

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Tank Girl now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

Neither maths nor Government and politics are changing this year, so you will do exactly the same specification for those as you have done this year.
