    Whether you take the whole A-level in 1 year or 2, is entirely up to you, as you are self teaching.

    I don't know anything specific about the difficulty. But it's obviously recommended that you have a good prior knowledge of the language, as is recommended for all A-level languages.

    I don't know if the course has changed but when I did it AS was a simple, you have to answer questions after reading a small passage, then translate a small paragraph from arabic to english then a short essay at the end.
    With A2 same kind of start with questions on a passage do tashkiil over a paragraph ie add vowel signs over words, translate a longer paragraph, and two essays at the end, both essays have questions on literature but there are options outside of literature like the one we were asked was how news coverage on arabic media has changed.
    So you need to have fairly strong grasp of arabic.
    Best thing is to look up past edexcel papers and see how you do and how you can answer them.
