Wales’ AS, A level and Advanced Welsh Baccalaureate results - Summer 2016

Qualifications Wales is the independent regulator of qualifications in Wales. One of our key activities is to oversee the award of GCSE, AS and A level qualifications and the Welsh Baccalaureate. We are currently in a programme of qualification reform and new specifications have already been introduced for some subjects. This summer saw the first award of new AS qualifications that have been developed for and taken by learners in Wales, so we have taken a close interest in these qualifications.
