    Hello everyone
    First time posting here
    So ya,
    I am in Abroad wants to do A level directly through british council. But the thing is am not very familiar with these AS/A levels. I went to British council here and all they said me that I can do A level directly without doing AS level. I went further to ask about the syllabus of A level but sadly they couldn't provide it .

    So I want to know what is the syllabus of Maths/phys and Chem If I directly want to give A level without doing AS level.
    Thank you.

    Depends on the exam board that you choose to do it with. For maths I'd highly recommend Edexcel and for Sciences probably AQA. Once you have chosen you can find that examing boards syllbus for that subject online!

    Also, keep in mind for Maths you will need to pick the modules you would like to do. You should do C1, C2, C3, C4 and then pick additional modules of your choice. If you would like to go into something more actuary/accounting based then do S1 and S2. If something more like engineering then choose M1 and M2.

    If you are looking at the latest AQA syllabus then you need to know everything that's on there.

    The CIE A levels you plan to take are qualifications in which AS level is a subset of the the full A level. You can if you wish sit all of the exams in one go but you have take both the AS exams often taken separately in first year study and the final A level exams.
    The maths specification is very clear on page 8 about what you have to study and what options you can choose. The chemistry specification explains you have to take all five exam papers for a full A level on page 10.
