A LEVELS; THE CURRENT SYSTEM AND THE NEW SYSTEM

 

(A change in the relationship between AS Levels and A level)

It is important as parents to understand the A levels system and how it will change. Information they say is power.

At the moment, a typical student would take four AS-levels in her first year of sixth form, and then follow three of those subjects through to A-level, also known as A2. Her AS mark at the end of the first year makes up 50 per cent of her final A-level grade.

Under the new system starting from September 2015, students are free to take AS-levels, but they will no longer count towards A-level grades. Instead they will be a stand-alone qualification.

Many schools say they may continue with the ‘AS levels’ but with the intention to lean more towards just the A levels as years go by.
