    Hi there... I'm an international private student going to start my AS-Level this year. Currently I'm googling for online courses for the IAL of the Edexcel board specially in Physics, Maths, or Biology.
    I also heard that edexcel A levels' textbooks can be used for edexcel IAL, so does it mean that courses are the same for both?

    Thank you in advance.

    For maths there is very little difference between A level and IAL. It would be fine to use the text books or distance learning material.
    For the sciences, the U.K. a levels have been substantially updated and differ from the IAL. My guess is that text books for the previous specification are a closer match to the current IAL content.

    Isn't IAL also updated? Can you please recommend a bio book for IAL ?

    No the IAL has not been updated to match the current UK specification.
