Need Advice

    • Thread Starter


    I completed my AS under Edexcel for all of my subjects. I would like to continue through my A2 in these subjects. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to move to another country and take my A2 there.
    However, the schools I would have to go to offers CIE A-levels only.
    It looks like my AS subjects will not allow me to take CIE A2, since my AS were done under Edexcel and don't count, as far as I know, towards CIE A-levels.
    Is there a way to complete my A-levels in CIE without having to take CIE AS? Or if you could please suggest any other way to get out of this problem.

    Looks like from what? Have you talked to the schools and/or the board and what have they said?

    Yes, I had talked to the school and they said they never had a similar situation so they advised me to retake my AS but under Cambridge.
    I feel this is a waste of my time and effort though as I got good grades in my Edexcel AS.
    Do you know of a way to take CIE A2 without retaking my AS?
    Thanks for responding.
