In Ofqual's continued slimming down of similar subjects, they've this week announced a final hit list of qualifications at AS, A-level and GCSE. There's something of a repreive for AS and A-levels in applied science, environmental science, humanities and science in society - if exam boards wish to continue to offer them, they will need to decide to develop reformed qualifications (Ofqual, p3).

Here's our round up of the hit-list, sorted by subject:
