So the a level maths are being changed to 3, 2 hours exams. With the first two exams assessing pure maths and the 3rd one Statistics and Mechanics. What do you make of this, do you think it could be harder because theres a greater possibility of not knowing which topics will come up?

And also do you still get do applied modules, eg decsions?

The stats and mech paper is meant to be the applied module. You only get the chance to do decision maths (or more stats or more mech) if you take further maths.

Maths has been reformed to no longer be modular. Instead, you take papers at the end of the course

these reforms to A level only apply to the specifications used for exams in England. They do not apply to International A levels from Edexcel or Cambridge.

assuming Bacons is a state school in England, yes they will do the new specification maths from September 2017
If its Bacons College in Rotherhithe then it will be the new AQA spec as detailed here
