    I am doing Edexcel Maths. However this course doesn't have any Modules like C1,C2,C3 or anything. It just has Pure maths, Stats and mechanics Year 1 and 2. What is the difference?

    The new reformed maths specification is a linear qualification like almost all subjects now in England.
    The main difference between a new linear qualification and the old modular one is that you will face 3 exams at the end of the course rather than 6 unit exams (3 AS in year 12, 3 A2 in year 13).
    If you take new AS exams at the end of year 12, the result no longer counts towards your final grade.
    If you need to resit the new A level you have to take all 3 exams again rather than just individual unit exams.
    What you have to study is completely fixed, you now have no choice in the combination of unit options you take.
