Currently living in Samoa (country in the pacific ) planning to shift over to New Zealand and attend a school where they sit Cambridge International Exams. Only problem is that Im in Year 12, and have never been through this system before. So I've got no choice but to sit AS level in Year 13. Really stressing out because I understand that the curriculum is relatively difficult compared to over here!!
Subjects that I plan on taking are
Accounting OR Business Studies OR Psychology (undecided between the three. hehe )
Anywho, I was wondering if it would be any use for me if I just sit the AS level and not A2 level..?
Also, any comments on the difficulty of the subjects above??
Turn on thread page Beta
New to CIE system. Help pls? watch

From the above, i've tried Maths (A level) and according to me i see that (AS MATHS ) is quite easy and you won't find great dificulty but the A2 course is quite difficult and you need to put more effort. You can do AS only without A2, but that depends on the university you're applying for, so you need to see the requirements of your university in order to determine what to study. Good Luck!!!

why aren't you going to take NCEA? i have heard that a lot of teachers in New Zealand are not very good with the Cambridge or Edexcel system because they all concentrate on the local system which is NCEA. When i moved here to New Zealand i had to switch to NCEA because hardly any schools teached Cambridge.
Here is my suggestion : do the NCEA system because it is accepted in New Zealand and Australia and i think its MUCH MUCH easier than Cambridge.
