A levels = Cambridge CIE vs EdExcelWatch
I searched this forum and on the internet but couldn't find satisfying or complete answers.
Cambridge IGCSE / A levels ( AS LEVELS )
they have core and extended
for the core exams the maximum grade you can get is C grade and many universities dont' accept core or AS levels
The grading for A levels and IGSE extended
is from A*, A B C D etc
now for EdExcel A levels
does it have the same gradings like CIE extended version
A B C
because some blogs have mentioned the EdExcel is like CIE core
Appreciate your answers
I don't know much about CAIE but I don't think it has Core and Extended at A level.
I am pretty certain that the following is true for all A levels, regardless of which exam board offers them:
AS levels examine the first half of A level content. The possible grades are A, B, C, D, E, U.
A levels (obviously) cover the full content of the A level and have possible grades of A*, A, B, C, D, E, U.
The majority of international A level specifications are modular. This means they use AS exams and A2 exams (which examine the second half of the A level content, plus a bit of examining the entire content) to determine the overall grade.
(This is not the case in England, where most people don't take AS level exams at all as the full A level is examined in one set of exams at the end of the course.)
