    Extended solutions and discussions of the questions are available here:
    http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/fac/sci/st...s/courses/aea/

    These are written by a member of the University of Warwick Maths Department. The language and notation used is therefore not always what is familiar to A level students.

    They were written to help those applicants who are taking AEA to meet their offer but do not get help from their school.

    Does anyone know where you can find the grade boundaries for each paper?

    I'll post a spreadsheet when I get home early next week if no one else has replied by then.

    Hi
    I've recently been doing some AEA questions as extensions and as practice for next year. Today I've come across one which requires the knowledge of the formula for parametric circles, which unfortunately I didn't know despite covering the parametrics topic and I'm pretty sure we didn't go over in class. Does the AEA often cover small things such as this which you are supposed to work out or is it actually part of the a level syllabus?

    I'm pretty sure the parametric equation for a circle is covered in most A level boards.

    Can you type, or post a screenshot of, the question?

    Haha yup, it's more as a sort of extra thing as a challenge. But will also be good as practice for step in future I guess, thinking logically and all

    Do you think there's much point doing AEA in Y12 if I'm already doing STEP 1, in terms of offers? I'm not sure if it's worth the extra prep tbh

    You probably don't need to prep for it so just do few papers the days before and thats it. Well thats what im doing. AEA is miles easier, it would benefit you thpugh.aea still can be challenging.
