Sadly no, CIE is an international exam board, therefore results cannot be converted to domestic boards like Edexcel.

A2 is not a standalone qualification so unless the CIE AS can be combined with the edexcel A2 you would get nothing from doing the A2.

I know edexcel have approved students taking their further maths qualification after completing the CIE full A level. I don't know if they'll let you transfer your CIE AS credit towards completing the edexcel international A level in maths. Talk to the exams office at your new school and ask them to contact edexcel if they need to clarify. You may have to take the edexcel AS exams as well which may be a good thing anyway if your results were not good.

It means
it MIGHT be useless, IF you can't combine the CIE AS with the edexcel A2 results it would be useless on its own.
the rules and processes for international A levels are not always the same as those for UK A levels.
I don't think you can but you need to get clarification from whoever in your school administers your exams entries.

I can't believe the school would suggest it if they didn't know for sure that it was allowed. BUT!! I have seen so many posts from international students that show their schools don't understand the A level rules that I think you ought to check.

You can't combine CIE AS and Edexcel A2. However, the content may not be that different so you could potentially study the Edexcel A2 course and then take the Edexcel AS and A2 exams at the end of the year in order to complete a full A level.
