New Draft Spec Released

I’ve been waiting with bated breath to see the draft A Level specification from AQA for teaching from September 2016 and here it is! I’ve had a quick glance and it does look quite a bit drier than the current spec and there is much more importance on cultural understanding than there is at the moment.  I do hope that AQA provide some clarification as to exactly what sort of topics need to be covered for the “Social issues and trends” and “Political and artistic culture” topics as the current titles are very vague.

I’d be interested to know what everybody else thinks?
