I know this option isn't available to all (state) schools, but as a private school we have the option to switch to IAL. I've looked around but couldn't find much/any discussion on this. From what I understand so far the IAL is more or less the same as the current modular A level structure, with a few small differences: 1) C1,C2 and C3,C4 are combined exams (C1 and C2 in one paper, C3 and C4 in one as well) 2) Small amount of new content in FP1 Everything else seems to remain the same. January and June sittings, modular system with AS feeding into A2. So it seems we can use the old text books, resources etc. This is looking attractive to us right now, as other departments in our school have done this previously - giving the advantage of letting the chaos die down over the first few years of the new Linear A levels. Hopefully we can then jump back in once enough resources and past papers have been published, and once any teething problems have been ironed out. Anyone had any experience with the IAL Maths (Edexcel)? Will they be as valued by universities as the new linear system? Any opinions on it would welcome.
