New A level policy at one of our local schools.
At .......... School, all students who enter Year 12 in September 2017 will choose 4 subjects to study in Year 12. In the Spring Term of Year 12, they will select one of these subjects in which to sit AS Level exams in the summer of 2017, and will then continue the other three subjects to full A Level in Year 13. AS Levels are an externally-validated qualification in their own right, meaning that students’ work in Year 12 is rewarded with a qualification even in the subject that they intend to drop before moving into Year 13.
Alongside their chosen AS Level examinations, students will also sit end-of-year internal examinations in their other subjects in the summer term of Year 12. These will act as an interim assessment of a student’s progress in the first year of their A Levels, and will be used to guide their university application process at the start of Year 13.
So AS level exam in one subject only.
Also does this policy means students will be allowed to do 3 A2 level subjects only?
