The future of Applied A levels

Find out about our plans for continuity of Applied A level provision, and the potential impact of the proposals in Ofqual’s summer consultation.

Here you’ll find information on our future A level provision following the Ofqual’s A level reform consultation. Read the full announcement from Ofqual.

We can now confirm our plans to replace the current range of Edexcel Applied A levels with new qualifications, such as our new BTEC Nationals or Edexcel A level qualification.

Your Edexcel Applied A level courses will be available until an alternative qualification is ready, so you can be confident about choosing the right course for your applied learners over the next couple of years with plenty of time to plan.
