A misunderstanding?

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?
There are no A level exams for the new spec this summer. Exactly what are you planning to take this summer:
  • Subject?
  • AS?
  • A2?
  • 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.
I don't understand what you mean by 'it's not about this summer'. Which textbook you should be using depends entirely on when you are taking your AS and your A2/A level exams.

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."
You are fine. There have been marginal changes to the modular spec since 2012 but nothing that would warrant a new text book. They are sidelined in the 2014 specification and (having had a quick flick through) are almost all administrative.
