Some subjects (from memory: Art, Biology, Business, Chemistry, Computing, Economics, History, Physics, Psychology, Sociology) became linear for those starting a 2 year course in September 2015. Most other subjects (but not Maths) will become linear for those starting Y12 in September 2016.

However, AS exams still exist so you could still take the AS at the end of Year 12 and stop there. The change is that if you do take AS exams in Y12 they will not count towards your final A level grade - they are decided purely by the A level exams (plus any coursework) at the end of Year 13.

Subjects and when they change are listed on this official site
https://www.gov.uk/government/public...a-level-reform

As Compost says, there are AS options for the new reformed A levels and what you may be able to take and may be able to drop at the end of year 12 depends on the strategy adopted by your school or college. Different schools have taken different approaches to the new A levels.
