    Hello everyone!

    In order to get into a particular graduate degree, I need to have done A Level Maths. I know A Levels are reforming so I asked a college I would be taking my exams with (as a private candidate) and they said this:

    "The last exam opportunity with the old syllabus will be June 2018 which means you can do AS exams in June 2017 and then A2 in June 2018.

    "Could someone explain to me the logistics/what's going on in terms of the reforms? I already have a few questions:

    1. Do the AS exams in June 2017 count towards the overall A Level anymore? If not, shouldn't I just do A2/A Level Maths in June 2018...?
    2. What exam board should I go with - which is the easiest basically?

    Any help would be reaaaaaaally appreciated because I'm confused af.Thanks!

    A level maths hasn't changed yet, so AS will count to 50% of the A level.

    The best board is edexcel, because there are lots of resources for this board and it's the most popular.
