These are the changes to A-levels and AS-levels proposed by Education Secretary Michael Gove in a letter to the exams regulator Ofqual:
- AS-levels will be separated from A-levels to become a "high quality standalone qualification"
- A-level students will no longer sit exams after one year, and will instead be tested at the end of their two-year course
- More emphasis on the final exam instead of modules and resits
- Reforms will kick in from September 2015 instead of September 2014 as planned
