I searched edexcel website whether students can register for GCE A levels outside the UK but I could not find an answer.

I sent a letter to the department responsible and I'm currently waiting for a reply.

I understand International advanced level (IAL) is what is usually studied overseas, But my question is can GCE A level be examined in a foreign country?

Hi There,

Yes GCE UK A-Levels for Edexcel can be taken in a foreign country, however IAL cannot be taken in the UK.

Are GCE A levels recognised by universities worldwide?

I think you can't do Edexcel GCE- AL outside the UK. I'm currently doing Edexcel IAL in Sri Lanka and we don't have that option to choose between GCE & IAL. Before 2013 even the foreign countries had GCE Alevels but it changed in 2014. Now we can only choose either Edexcel IAL or Cambridge International Alevels depending on the country.

This is just not true. Edexcel GCE A-Levels can be taken in a foreign country.

Sorry, I know it's an old thread but I just couldn't find a definitive answer. Can anyone confirm that Edexcel A Levels can be taken outside the UK? Thanks!
