New AS and A Level syllabuses (now called specifications) were introduced in all subjects for first teaching in September 2000 under the banner Curriculum 2000. There was very little change in the content of AS and A Level Mathematics just a slight increase but the surrounding regulations dealing with re-sits access to formulae and use of calculators were all made more severe. More serious were changes to the environment in which mathematics was embedded; it was now to be one of 4 rather than 3 subjects in the first year and students were expected to take 3 modules (now called units) in that year where two had been customary.
