DS is sitting AS in Biology ,Physics and Geography this year (as wells compulsory Welsh Bac-dont even get me stared on this ridiculous waste of a topic!). Curriculum/exams have changed quite dramatically this year and he's finding it very difficult to revise as there are no past papers...I've got him the study guides to go along with the AS text books for biology and Physics ( he's ok with Geography)...anyone else dos having issues with new curriculum....apparently the whole year did abysmally in mocks in Jan and I'm beginning to panic he may not get the grades he needs/deserves

There is a whole topic for education, try there.

There will be sample assessment materials on the WJEC website, though the teachers may have already used these.

He needs to ask his teachers what to revise from.

Obviously all students sitting the reformed A Levels (and GCSEs) will be in the same boat with past papers, in that there aren't any. So it's not like he's being disadvantaged compared to others.

For English lit / Lang lots of the questions will be similar to the legacy GCSEs. Ask his teacher if there are any legacy A Level papers that would be appropriate.
