My AS grade was an A but my A2 grade was a B - so what is my overall grade?Watch
This year I did my A2 level in creative writing and film studies and I got two Bs.
So I was just wondering, were the Bs on the my A2 result paper the AS and A2 results combined? or were they just the A2 results? - and if not, what would an A and B combine to for my overall grades?
Yeah for linear courses your AS year doesn’t count, it’s only the final A2 year. For example, I did A-level Sociology. It didn’t matter what grade I got at AS, because the final exams were taken at A2. Therefore your A2 is your overall grade. With the old A-levels, your AS year was worth 50% of your overall grade but it isn’t like that anymore. AS is basically worth 0%
2017 for Sociology I think. It’s different for different courses. Like for my Government and Politics my AS counted 50% as did my A2 50%. But from September onwards it’s a full linear course, exams only at A2, basically worth 100%. These are the A-level reforms now
If they were not linear your results paper with your grades on would say AS and A2 grades and then your overall grade. However if they don't and it just says what you got at A2 they are most likely linear and therefore that's your final grade
Probably as a way to prepare students for second year. Either way there must be a way to figure out whether your course is or not. If you know the code which should be on the results sheet you could probably Google and find out
