Pearson have announced that they are intending to withdraw their AS qualifications in the following subjects:
- Art and Design
- Physical Education
- Design and Technology
- Drama and Theatre
- Economics B
- French, German, Spanish, Chinese, Italian, Russian
The final assessment opportunity for these qualifications will be summer 2020.
Pearson's aim in withdrawing these subjects is to align their qualifications and support with the subjects and levels that teachers are prioritising.
They will continue to offer their A level qualifications in all of these subjects, and this decision does not affect any of Pearson's AS qualifications in other subjects.
If you need any additional information or support, the contact details of your subject advisor can be found on the Pearson subject pages. Pearson also has an FAQ page which may help to clarify any further queries.
