I'm gonna pass the a level as an external candidate, i will pass AS and A2 at the same time.
But i got few question, i will be very grateful if you answer :
which examination should i choose ? CIE or Edexcel ? in my exam center i cannot take CIE for sciences because they cannot manage coursework and real time exp. So how can i know in which Subject there is a coursework or no ?
Plus there are many A levels that are not offered by Edexcel or CIE .. so can i do some A levels by CIE and some others by Edexcel, i mean can i mix up ?
Secondly, is there a huge difference between the syllabus of the same subject on a different examination board ?
Moreover, i heard there are "papers" inside a subject, or different "modules" inside a subject... So i guess after choosing which subjects i want to pass, i have to pick up papers ? Can you tell me more about ?
Thanks for answering

You can find out if there's coursework or not by reading the subject specification (found on exam board website). Yes you can mix them up, you don't have to do all your A levels with just one exam board. There aren't any huge differences between exam boards, no. Yes most A levels have modules - what subjects are you doing?
