    Hi, so I'm in year 12 going to give my AS levels in October November 2017 and A-Levels in May June 2018. Yh this is the last year our school is doing modular A-Levels. So lucky!!! Well coming back to the point I've heard that you get 5% extra marks for doing Linear A-Levels i.e. giving all the papers at once. Is this true? What do you think? Should I go for Modular or Linear? I'm doing CIE if that helps. Any help appreciated.

    I doubt thats true , if it is go for the linear modules , but the 5% is a great advantage as you would have almost half a grade there itself , so id say go for that however you put alot more pressure on yourself to know all of the content for your exams , so you would have double the content and a better chance at good grades? is it worth it , hell ye , im doing the linear course at the moment and i dont think its that hard as most of the first year ties in with the second!

    Sounds like a myth to me. I've never heard of it. Perhaps the person you have "heard" it from can point to where it says this on the CIE web site.
