Recently been working through some past papers AS edexcel maths and even after the January exams stopped there are still 2 papers per year for example June 2013 paper 1 and paper 1R c2. I have also noticed that in some cases the paper R's have been somewhat harder so i was just wondering if anyone could tell my why there are 2 papers?

Yeah they're the International papers for the International exams taken in timezones about 5 hours away. Generally speaking they're considered to be harder, e.g. Core 1 June 2014 but from the other two international papers I've done, C2 and S1 international papers don't seem to be that much more difficult than the UK Edexcel papers.

They are for the same subject specification as the UK papers and are not supposed to be any more difficult than UK papers. For some units, e.g. S1, there will be 3 papers, UK, R and International A Level (IAL)
