    You could ask your teacher or your exam officer, but personally I would just download the specifications for both and compare them of drop them an e-mail.the details are in the link.

    Look at mark schemes and past papers as well.


    Seems the only difference is GCE is shifting to linear i.e exams at end of 2 years and IAL stll allow AS and A2. Says the content is the same, so get the Edexcel GCE books if theres no IAL version.

    You could also look at old syllabus spec books i.e when it was AS and A2 as lots of those will be available cheaply.
