A Question About SpecificationsWatch
You've been learning the wrong spec. Major issue.
It appears that the current AQA exam specification for both AS and A2 that will be sat within a few months is post-2014.
However, the textbooks I have been using date to 2012. The question I have is, are there any functional differences between the two, or is it just a misunderstanding?
- AS and A2?
It's not about this summer. My textbooks are all dated 2012. The AQA website for my subjects says the current specification for the summer exams is post-2014.
Physics, Chemistry, Biology at both AS and A2 are the subjects I am taking this summer.
If you are taking AS and A2 this summer then you have the correct textbooks. The new ones only apply to the new AS this year and A levels from next year.
By "it's not about this summer" I meant that the post-2014 spec. wouldn't be introduced this summer, but on 2014
I know about the new specification being introduced this year - that's the one only AS exams are available for.
What I mean is this - if you look on the right side, it says "Specification for exams from 2014." This is what has me confused, because all my textbooks are dated from 2012, whilst the exams I will be taking are for the specification "for exams from 2014."
