    Did you do AS with Edexcel? If so I think you're OK for a couple of reasons.
    1. If you weren't then the exams officer of your current centre will have been flooded with warnings that you were attempting to cash-in A level without having taken AS.
    2. The rules about transferring between AS and A2 ( http://www.jcq.org.uk/exams-office/e...ments-20132014 ) mention that you can't swap from CIE but don't mention this. It only says:

    It is not possible to transfer components from an International Baccalaureate qualification.
    • Similarly, it is not possible to transfer a completed AS qualification as awarded by Cambridge
    International Examinations (CIE).

    However, I don't know the answer for certain and I recommend that you get your current centre to check asap, or try asking Edexcel yourself.
