Please note: Some of the set products in the Eduqas GCSE, AS and A Level specification have been changed for assessment in 2021 to make them more current, or where support material is no longer available. However, the forms and the elements of the theoretical framework covered remain the same. With regard to newspapers and radio the products have simply been updated. All of the material in the Student Books and Revision Guides continues to be relevant and applicable to the new products.
