    Hello

    I am a current year 13 student and I have completed my AS exams this summer. As I have done one of my A Levels a year earlier I am studying only 3 A Levels at the moment.

    I want to do another, completely different, A Level (English Literature and Language) in one year (AS and A2) however I am not sure if that is possible considering the new A Level reforms. As I would have to do both AS and A2 in the summer 2016, I cannot complete the new A Level specification.

    Hence my question is: would it be possible to sit AS English Language and Literature, in the summer of 2016, if I have never done it before? Or is it the case that this opportunity is only available to those who are resitting their AS exams?

    You could do the whole A-level if you wanted to as there will still be AS and A2 exams for old specification.

    Hi - it's not too late to study for a full A Level for next summer. Due to the reforms and May-June 2016 being the final exam date for several A Level subjects, we're offering our Fast Track service for free on any A Levels with their final exams next year. You could still get that extra A Level or AS! You can either get in touch or check our website for details.
