    It's an irony that I'm bringing this up while the results dat is less than 24 hours away. Not a long ago, I read an article which was about this "controversial" a level reforms. So far, what I know is that AS level is no longer considered and this's triggering many elite institutes to come up with their own admission tests. It also mentioned that AS levels are the best predictors of how well a student will perform. If I understood it correctly, it sounded as if A level is becoming more IB-like such as taking all exams at the end of A2. Can you tell me what the reforms exactly about and how is it controversial?
