Barnsley Sixth Form College has produced a guide to the upcoming national A Level reform to help students understand the changes.
The changes include separation of AS and A2 qualifications, assessing qualifications generally only by exams at the end of the course and removal of some A Levels to avoid duplication. The changes will be introduced gradually from September 2015 and will affect any school pupils currently in Year 11 or below who are thinking about going on to study A Levels after doing their GCSEs. Many elements of the existing A Level system will remain the same, including the grading system, the length of courses and the value of the qualifications.
