With these reforms, if you fail a year, do you retake AS and A level exams in one year?

No. A2 exams at the end of two years contain AS and A2 content. Your AS exams do not count at all towards your final A2 grade. If you fail your AS exams, no resit is required. You just do the A2 and that will be your final A Level grade

Oh right okay thanks. My sixth form college is planning mocks at the end of this year for subjects that are linear and are threatening to kick people out based on the results of those exams.

It's hard to say...

It really depends on your college whether or you not you carry on with that subject you failed.

The new system has alot of pros and cons.

AS is now a standalone qualification and does not contribute to A level.
You do not retake AS exams since they are of no significance.


simply put - It's funny with the new linear system it's possible for gifted students to do A levels in one year with half the exams of that of modular.
