Taking English International A-Levels as Private Candidate (Edexcel) watch

    • Thread Starter


    My name is Eden-Joy, and I'm from Malaysia. I'm planning to pursue my law degree (LLB) at the University of Hertfordshire, UK in 2018. I will need to take my A-Levels before I can do that, to be eligible to take the Malaysian Bar Exam. I'm planning to take English Language and Law for my A-Levels as a private candidate via the British Council.

    A bit of a backstory: I have a Diploma in Law from a local college here, and a dear lecturer is helping me with notes and such, so law isn't as daunting to me as compared to English -- not so much for the language itself, but rather the lack of resources I possess in relation to this particular subject for A-Levels.

    Could anyone help me out with recommendations for textbooks, etc. for English IAL (Edexcel) (YEN01)? I would be extremely grateful. Navigating the murky waters of A-Levels as a private candidate is surprisingly difficult.

    Thank you!
Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
