In 2015 new A Levels were introduced for English language, English literature, English language and literature, the sciences (physics, chemistry and biology), history, psychology, art and design, sociology, business, economics and computer science. First exams will be sat in 2017.

We know this is a busy and difficult time for you so we've put together this information to help you manage the changes.

What do the changes mean for you?

The changes vary according to level and subject so we've compiled a list of subject-specific FAQs, summaries of key changes and a selection of useful links.

How can we help?

If you're looking for new resources to support you through the changes, we have published new A Level resources for French, Geography, German, Religious Studies and Spanish for a range of exam boards - see below for more information. These are all available on free inspection.
