    So basically I've been self-studying CIE AS and A level Maths and have been finding it quite hard I've heard that Edexcel is very easy as compaired to CIE is it true?

    I would say that they're about the same for Maths. The biggest advantage of doing Edexcel IAL is that they're still using a modular system so you can target your studies better and retake individual modules if necessary. If you found CIE maths hard you're likely to find Edexcel's hard as well.

    However, it's a very different story with Further Maths. CIE Further Maths is by far harder than Edexcel in terms of both the content and the way questions are asked.

    Tell me if you have any problems with any particular topic in maths and I'll see what I can do to help.

    I'm not qualified to answer that but if you have doubts with any of the course content, just pm me. I can do free personal Khan Academy-style tutorials through Skype if you want. ^^
