Decoupling and co-teaching

New AS and A-levels have been decoupled. This means they've become two entirely separate qualifications, and the AS doesn't count towards the A-level.

We've made the qualifications co-teachable, which means:

  • the course content of our AS specification is mostly the same as the first year of our corresponding A-level
  • you can teach a mixed class of AS and A-level students together in the first year (Year 12).
