The exam board OCR found that in psychology, the percentage of students receiving a grade C or higher was on average 5.9% higher for those taking AS compared to just A level. A similar trend was found in Biology although no grade benefit was found for Fine Art or English Literature.
In 2018, only 269,090 students took an AS level compared to 1,331,955 in 2015. This shows that there is some merit in pupils taking the AS exams.
