    Hi all,

    I was just wondering - due to the development of these new linear A Levels, do you think the exam boards will extend the dates of the new A Level reforms to later dates, such as mid/late June, and give us more time to prepare?
    These new A Levels I've heard are meant to be more rigorous, so I assume the dates for the exams will be at a later stage.

    What do you guys think?

    Why not try posting in a specific subject forum- you might have more luck there.

    No, the window for A level exams will remain the same but you'll be able to check soon as the draft timetables for Summer 2017 will be out at the beginning of March.

    Don't forget that you won't have lost weeks for study leave at AS.

    Won't there be more exams at the end of yr13 (EG in physics we have 3 in yr13 rather than 2) so they'll probably be more spread out?

    They might start a bit earlier (as it doesn't matter if they clash with the same subject at AS) but they won't finish later - the exam borads are pushed to get everything done by Results Day as it is.
