So how exactly are the A2 results calculated if they don't consider AS too?(Original post by Michiyo)
The new A-levels (teaching from 2015) have AS exams, but if you take the subject to A2, you most likely do not take the AS exams. If you sit the AS exams and continue with that subject on to A2, your AS grade will not count towards your A-level grade. So, you can get A in AS and U for the entire A-level; because AS-levels do not matter anymore (unless you do not take them up to A2). Regardless, your school might make you take the AS exams so they know to weed out those who do not do well, just like my school did.
Looking at CIE History from 2015, it seems those who want to take the full A-level still have to take all the exams, so I am not sure if this is also the case for CIE, sorry. (It might be that you have to take all the exams at the end of A2, but I have no idea.) Mine were from Edexcel, AQA, WJEC Eduqas, and OCR.
But did you bother to watch?
