We have updated this syllabus to make it clearer and more accessible for both teachers and learners and to make sure that it reflects current educational thinking. The updated syllabus is an AS-only syllabus with increased coursework weighting.
Please see the 2024-2026 syllabus document for full details on the changes.
The updated syllabus is for examination from the June 2024 series onwards. Examinations are available in the June and November series. Please see the 2024-2026 syllabus above for full details.
