Hi. Examination bodies usually don't matter but each one will specialise in certain subjects. Edexcel are quite specialised in maths but CIE is international and since you live in France, is probably the better option. What other subjects are you doing?
In terms of units and modules, your grade is made up of several sections in your subject that you took. Like a maths exam will have a statistics unit or module. And a history exam will have a unit of 14th century for example. A module or unit is an exam that covers what you learnt in class as you go through a range of topics. Coursework is taken into factor too but the emphasis is heavily on exams. Are you planning on going to university in the UK?
Are you sure these are A-levels you are taking? Nine subjects seems to be quite a lot.
A-levels are quite different from "le bac".
9 a levels is craaaaaazy loads
How many years are you planning on taking A-levels over? Why not take the French diploma and self-study as much as you want for each subject? What level have you studied the subjects to previously? What are you planning to study at university? How do you know that science subjects are easy to you?
It may be doable in terms of workload, depending on you. Obviously for French you'll just need to turn up to the exams and possibly do controlled assessments. For the rest you could do about 2.5 A-levels per year for three years or something. It'll be tough but is fully possible for some people.
They are very spread out subjects though. Are you sure you're good enough at maths, sciences, essay subjects and art to be able to do A-levels in each? Usually people are only good in a few areas.
Be aware that some universities, particularly for some courses, only accept A-levels done over one 2 year interval.
I’m planning to take A levels within 1 or 2 years. I alreadytake the French diploma called “le baccalauréat” last year; I’m already studyingsubjects that I want to take since January. So I know maths and science arequite easy for me because I have already studied a lot of things that are intothese subjects’ syllabus. In fact, I just need few months to be preapred for a subject, I think. I guessim good enough at science, maths and art to do a full a level in each. For literature,I have to work a bit. (Maybe I’m wrong, will see). Im not planning to study atuniversity, I will do preparatory classes in France, then it could be possiblefor me to study abroad, if I didn’t get the school that I want at the end ofprep classes ;
Now I know that a module cost 30-40€ and for each a level inscience and maths there are 6 modules. So it will cost 180-240€ for one a level; I better do 3-4 A levels now and the others in November. I think I will domaths, further maths, physics, chem now… Will see then
