A Level Reform: The Guide
Click the graphic to the left for our guide to A Level Reform and what this will mean for students.
“Many A Levels are already assessed solely by exams but those that are currently a mix of exams and coursework may be changed. There will be no more than 20% coursework and only in areas where there is recognition that certain skills cannot be assessed in an exam e.g. creative writing in English. Otherwise, assessment will be by exam only. In Sciences, practical assessment will be reported separately as a pass or fail, rather than as part of the A Level grade.”
