Yay! Not sure if you all know this but I'm quite happy about this and was considering trying aea or step papers. I think uni offers still include or encourage aea so yipee ...for now. Won't matter to me too much later on anyway...

Sorry if I'm telling you something you already know.

Excellent. Getting an A* in maths is a doddle compared to the AEA.

YES YES YES

does this mean I can do AEA physics and chemistry also (upon rereading the article, it doesn't )? Because if it does, I'm a happy bunny.

Is Maths-only if I understand correctly.

It is only Maths that has been extended. As I / several of us wrote on the TSR Wiki that the QCA judged the Maths one filled a specific niche that the A* couldn't, apparently.

Well, the niche filled by AEA is pretty much the same as the one filled by STEP I, no?

Hmm, I think they're fairly distinct. The style of STEP questions requires practice/experience before a student can perform optimally, whereas AEA can be sat successfully with no prior preparation whatsoever.
