My DN, currently in Y11, is choosing 4 subjects for A level. The school's web site says these are AS choices from 2018/19. Is this correct? I thought the exams would be linear by then. She is interested in Maths, Chemistry, Government and Politics and Geography. (Please ignore the subject choices in terms of suitability for university courses).

All are suitable for uni anyway.

Some schools still take AS but unlike before the result will not carry forward to form part of their A level result. The A level will be tested at the end of yr 13 covering 2 years work.

So DN would have to revise for 4 AS level exams as well as (presumably) 3 A levels, but 2 years worth of syllabus, the following year? Seems a lot of effort for no reason.
