This AS Level Economics course forms part of the new linear qualifications. This means that students will sit exams for their particular qualification at the end of the completed course in the June series.
AS levels will become decoupled from A‰Ûª Levels; this means that they will both become entirely separate qualifications. You will no longer be able to carry forward your AS qualification to the A‰Ûª Level qualification and you will sit either AS or A‰Ûª Level exams.
