It applies for all domestic exam boards (AQA, Edexcel. OCR, CCEA and WJEC) for Biology, Chemistry and Economics. It will not apply to Maths for another 2 years.

No. The A level reforms mean the majority of subjects have changed to linear, where the exams are at the end of two years. Biology, Chemistry and Economics will all be taught this way, regardless of exam board. Some qualifications, such as maths, are not changing this year, so this will stay as normal.

Biology is the same as Chemistry and Economics - all at the end.
