Here's the link to Ofqual's guide to the GCSE and A-level exam changes, as they currently stand. (There has been a request to put A-level maths/further maths changes back by another year so they may change again).

I'd be interested to know if anyone can look at that document and not think "what a poorly thought-out mess". The government should be ashamed.

Does this mean that students currently in Year 12 and studying Geography will not be able to take an AS Level in it? Or have I got the wrong end of the stick?!

Those currently in Y12 will be sitting AS as normal.

A-level changes might not happen if Labour get in, but as far as I'm aware the GCSE changes are definitely going ahead come what may in the election.
