What is the difference between new and old A Levels?
Most subjects will see a reduction from six units down to four. This will help to reduce the burden of assessment.
The introduction of stretch and challenge at A2 will prepare students better for higher education and employment. The emphasis on developing thinking and problem-solving skills should be more motivating for students. The changes include:
A broad range of question types to ensure that a wide range of skills is assessed.
A requirement for extended writing to give students the opportunity to demonstrate the full breadth and depth of their knowledge and understanding.
Synoptic assessment that will test students’ understanding of the subject as a whole and their ability to make links between different areas of the subject.
An A* grade will be introduced to the grading of A level (not AS) to reward the most exceptional candidates. It will be awarded to students who achieve a grade A overall at A level and also achieve 90% or more on the Uniform Mark Scale across their A2 units. The first A* award will be in 2010.
Similar options are included within Diplomas (which can of course include A-Levels), so that all young people will have the possibility to demonstrate their capabilities at an advanced level.
