    Asking for a friend of a friend...
    Are any English A-level courses now completely online? Are any ONLY completed online, as in with no handwritten exam? I told the person who asked that I couldn't see that being the case, but she was adamant.
    So please could any current teachers let me know if it's true, and what you think about it if so? I did a quick google which suggested none (Lang/Lit or combined) are, but I'd appreciate it if any current teachers/examiners could confirm this please?

    Thanks. I can't believe it either. How could it work?

    Maybe in 50 years when the art of writing has vanished, then...

    You can study online and they use a Skype tutor to provide more tutition. But the assessment is the same as always. Handwritten examination.

    It is unusual but we have had rare instances (I think) where a (statemented) student was able to write with an exam Cromebook (obviously disconnected / with no resources / no spell check etc.). This was a few years ago now.
