Criticisms of A level grading continued, and when Curriculum 2000 was introduced, the decision was made to have specific criteria for each grade, and the 'N' grade was abolished.In 1989, Advanced Supplementary (AS) awards were introduced; they were intended to broaden the subjects a pupil studied post 16, and were to complement rather than be part of a pupil's A-level studies.

A typical route is to study four subjects at AS level and then drop down to three at A2 level, although some students continue with their fourth subject.
Initially, a student might study three subjects at A-Level and one at AS-Level, or often even four subjects at A-Level.
Curriculum 2000 was introduced in September 2000, with the first new examinations taken in January and June of the following year.
A wide variety of subjects are offered at A-level by the five exam boards.
Although exam boards often alter their curricula, this table shows the majority of subjects which are consistently available for study.
