    I may be a complete ignorant fool for asking, but what are they? If they are exams that test your ability in a subject, I would relish the opportunity to test my skills in an English AEA next year. That is, provided it is a course for A2 students to do... I am potentially looking at a 90%+ for English Lit this year, is that good enough? Someone enlighten me as to how I could get involved, etc...

    ask your teacher- only one board does it per subject and it varies from subject to subject. it's designed to test the high A2 students a bit more (which you probably do qualify for with 90%+) and it's a straight pass/fail exam that basically makes students read around the subject a bit more. just ask your teacher if you can do it (but it does depend on the exam board- i don't knwo who does it for english lit)

    yeah they're meant to test ability really. Someone in biology last year got full marks full the whole AS/A2 course and still failed the bio AEA. It tests your ability to think rather than just churn out information.

    English AEA is done by OCR (just finished this years ) If you look on the OCR website there is one past paper on there (but be warned, its relatively nice compared to the last two years questions) ...there isnt really a course for it, its more testing your innate ability, as long as you know your ways of analysis well. Mind you, its difficult..put it this way, no-one from our school has pass it yet...
