my school offers AEAs, so i thought i'd do a couple, as something extra coz im just doing the 3 Alevels (economics, maths and geography)
Doing AEAs in ECONOMICS and GEOGRAPHY.

was wondering if many offer people are doing them?? if so, any ideas what to expect, and what do you think uni's will make of them?

How much effort do they require ? Addtionally how challenging are they, and are they a recognised qualification?

Well, since not all schools/colleges offer AEAs, then it would be unfair for universities to ask for them in their standard offers. Of course, if you can do them, and do well in them, then all the better.

Bear in mind that if you do them, then it is likely that they will also form part of your offer - a larger workload and more pressure!

Remember, you will be at no disadvantage if you don't do them. As long as you do well in your A-levels it doesn't matter much.
