There seem to be people who are misunderstanding this whole situation so this is just to clear the confusion.
AS Levels still exist and will exist until the government says they won't. People seem to think that AS levels are being taken away but that's not true.
What is happening, is the separation of AS levels from A2 levels.
"AS and A levels will be decoupled – this means that AS results will no longer count towards an A level, in the way they do now." This is what the government website says about AS and A2 levels.
Now to what sixth forms are saying:
Some sixth forms have said that students will not be taking exams at the end of year 12. This may have been what led to the confusion, but this simply means that the sixth form will not be offering AS levels, only A2 levels for which exams will be taken at the end of year 13.
This decision may be due to the costs or to make sure all students complete A2 levels with the best chances of doing well.
If you're not sure about what your sixth form is or isn't offering, ASK ASK ASK.
