On the basis of only a few C12 papers that have ever been offered I think the difficulty of C12 versus separate C1 and C2 is exaggerated. Top maths candidates complete the exams well within the allowed time and will have no difficulty with either GCE or IAL format. SOME candidates may struggle with the concentration and energy levels needed for a longer exam.

If you take Edexcel IAL you have the advantage of exams in January and May/June meaning you can spread the exams out AND have more opportunities to resit units if necessary. If you take Edexcel GCE you will be limited to summer exams. You should also check which is available to you. Your preferred choice may not be possible if your exam centre only offer one or the other.
