Since new AS, A Level and GCSE qualifications (9–1) (first teaching 2015 and 2016) are linear qualifications, entries need to be made for the relevant qualification using the correct option code (just a single entry code). This includes A Level Sciences (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) and GCSE (9–1) English Language, whereby entering for the correct option also includes entry for the new endorsements.
AS and A Level History are the exception to this as they are linear qualifications with a unitised entry structure. Before making entries for A Level History, your centre must use OCR’s Specification Creator to confirm that the units make up a valid course.
As for current linear qualifications, when retaking a new linear qualification, candidates must take all the components.
