    Hi, I'm starting sixth form in September and I still need to pick my last subject but I'm really confused by the reforms. Are computing, maths and accounting reformed? I'm also really confused as to what it means for a subject to be reformed, how is a reformed subject different to an unreformed one? There just doesn't seem to be any information anywhere.
    Thank you

    Everything's linear and your AS grade won't count towards your A2 one. Maths is staying the same until Sept. 2017 though

    Computer Science is reformed,Maths and Accounting aren't. In a re-formed subject you will take all the exams in the summer of Year 13. For subjects that have yet to change you will take AS levels in Year 12 (that make up 50% of the final A level), and can re-sit individual units along with your A2 units in Year 13.
