Linear A Levels
All A Levels are now linear. This is a national change.
What is a ‘linear A level’ ?
A linear A level is assessed at the end of two years of study. You will still sit internal exams at the end of your first year to monitor your progress and reinforce your learning, but these will not count towards your overall A level grade. All A Levels are now linear.
What does this mean for me?
This means that if you choose A Levels you will be taking a study programme of linear A Levels where you will be formerly assessed at the end of the two years. From September 2019 you can either take a 3 or 4 subject linear A Level programme. Whichever you choose you will take all of them to full A Level rather than dropping one down to an AS level.
