18. To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families if he will make a statement on the future of the AS-level qualification. (194081)

We will review, in 2013, the evidence and experience following the introduction of all 17 of the new Diplomas to see how the overall range of qualifications meets the needs of young people and supports their progression into further study and employment. We will consider the future of A levels, including AS levels, in the light of this evidence.
