    From this September 2016, I'll be doing A-level EDEXCEL maths and I'll be doing C1, C2, S1, C3, C4, M1.

    I was wondering the layout of maths, like when exams start and how long exams and learning the modules last and also the percentage of the exam that gives you the overall grade. I was also wondering what percentages I have to get, to get an A in A-level maths.

    If you have any other information you may feel is relevant, please share.

    Thank you so much.

    You do 3 units in Y12 (probably C1, C2 and S1) and 3 in Year 13. Each unit has a UMS mark of 100, making 600 in all. Each had a 90 minute exam. The exams are in May.early June and dates for exams for next year are here: http://qualifications.pearson.com/en...imetables.html

    The actual exams are out of 75 which is converted to SUM and the conversion depends on how difficult the exam is.

    You do three maths modules in your first year, three maths modules in your second. I don't know whether they've made a change so you'll sit both AS and A2 exams at the end of the A2 year or you'll 3 of them in your first and three of them in your second. C1,2,3,4 are the core modules, and you'll do C1 and C2 in your first year and C3 and C4 in your second. S1 and M1 are additional modules and you'll either sit S1 in your first and M1 in your second or vice versa (I do think M1 will be in your second considering it's harder according to a lot of people). C1 I'd say builds on GCSE, and C2 is more difficult than C1 but you should be fine

    It varies, but you'll need an average of 80 UMS per paper.
