When the specifications change for students starting from September 2008 onwards, will those of us taking units this year still be able to resit from the same unit in the future?

I ask, because two of my subjects (Economics & Politics) will go from 6 units to 4 units, 2 for AS and 2 for A2. With the new specifications exams effective as of January 2009.

You can still retake for another year I think...

That's for AQA... but I think it's the same for all boards.

So in Jan 2009, there will be two Unit 1 exams available? One on the current spec, and the other on the new one?
