Guys, I honestly need help understanding the difference between all of this UK exam boards. I am a candidate of Edexcel IAL. I have physics, chemistry, maths, biology. I was searching for a forum which has a complete course for my curriculum but there's is hardly any for IAL. I have my A2 exams in 2 months and I honestly need help. I mean what is the difference between all of these specifications. Will I be good if I purchase the courses for the GCE specification? Also I really need help with solving question papers. I am thinking of purchasing courses from snaprevise.com but they don't have the IAL courses specifically. Or is alevelbiology.co.uk better? Which one is worth my money?

Hi I hope your well
I sat my a levels las year and I did edexcel B for biology.
I personally didn't find any online resources that were particularly beneficial and since you're doing IAL I would recommend that you:
- Print out your syllabus, use it to understand each and every point that you need to do know for the exam (Basically learn your content inside out) using your book.
- Use tailored tutors videos on youtube to help you understand any concepts that might be a bit long/ challenging.
- Do ALL your previous past paper starting from the 2019 and going backwards mark them thoroughly look at the mark scheme and try to understand exactly where you went wrong use the examiners report to help you understand how you should answer in future. Than REPEAT the question based on what you've learned.
- Make flash cards or note down any questions and answers and visit them every few days.
- Try to understand the different exam techniques and method there are to answering questions ( E.g explain for 2 marks might just mean giving a point and explaining it briefly)

You can do this! 2 months is definitely a bit of time to help you improve your grade and exam technique.
