    The wikipedia page is a bit confusing, but here's the main jist I think:
    (Original post by Wiki)
    The most recent changes to A-Levels began in 2000, when the government introduced Curriculum 2000 which split the A-Level into two parts, the AS (Advanced Subsidiary) and A2 examinations.[7] The former is generally taken in Year 12 (Year 13 in Northern Ireland) and the latter is generally taken in Year 13 (Year 14 in Northern Ireland). Satisfactory achievement in AS and A2 modules results in the award of an A-Level qualification. It is possible to sit only AS modules, in which case only an AS-level qualification would be gained; this is given half the number of points of a full A-Level on the UCAS tariff points system. Advanced Subsidiary levels differ from the previous Advanced Supplementary levels in that they cover the same breadth of the subject as in the full A-Level but in less depth. The old AS-levels were also not a prerequisite for the corresponding A-Level and were examined separately.

    I think an A-Level is the whole 2 year course, with AS being the first year and A2 the second.

    Pfft, if my photo on the Shetland news site was anything to go bye (inability to smile anyone?) then aye aye wont want any :p:
