At St. Ambrose College, we follow the OCR A specification. The published specification and past papers can all be downloaded from here:

Students will sit the G484 examination in January and the G485 examination in May/June of their A2 year. Module G486 is a coursework module and will be internally assessed at a convenient point in the A2 year.

It is strongly advised that students download and complete every past paper possible when revising, as well as making notes from revision guides and class notes.
