    ^As above, thanks in advance- the A2 would not be a retake as subject was dropped at the end of Year 12.

    Possibly, although I would advise you to go through the content of the AS again.

    In principle it is fine, the only limit on completing an A level is the life of the specification. However, as A levels are in the middle of changing specifications it does matter what subject it is. What is it?

    It's Economics, which I know is one of those to have already undergone a specification change for first teaching September 2015. However, there will be AS and A2 resits for the old specification until June 2017, it's just that if I sit the A2 in 2017, then I'm not sure if I would be allowed to do it because it wouldn't be a resit.

    It's not clear how strictly they're going to enforce the re-sit only rules so the best thing would be to check with the exam board. My hunch is that since you've started the A level you will be allowed to finish it.
