Since 2000, A Levels have been MODULAR courses, which means that exams have been taken in the first and second year of the course. In the past, the first year, or AS year, has contributed to 50% of the overall A Level grade and the remaining 50% contributed to the overall grade at the end of the second year of study.
From September 2015, Business Studies will change and become LINEAR. This means that all exams will be taken at the end of two years of study. The philosophy of the reform is that the rigour of A levels will not change and in the main the breadth and depth of content will not change. These changes aim to prepare young people better for the demands of employment and further study. They will give pupils, parents, teachers, universities and employers greater confidence in the integrity and reliability of our qualifications system.
