International Advanced Levels from 2013 | Accounting
Edexcel International Advanced Level Accounting
 
The Edexcel International Advanced Level in Accounting replaces Edexcel GCE A level Accounting. Students taking this course and sitting exams in January 2014 and June 2014 will be awarded an Edexcel International Advanced Level qualification.

Please note: only the name of this qualification has changed. The content and assessment are exactly the same as the current Edexcel GCE A level Accounting qualification.

Edexcel International Advanced Level qualifications are not available to centres in the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. Additionally, British Armed Forces schools based overseas are not able to make entries for these qualifications.

Edexcel's International AS/Advanced Level in Accounting, regulated by Pearson, aims to develop students' knowledge and understanding of the principles, concepts and techniques of accounting. The syllabus lays a secure foundation for the future study of Accounting or related subjects. In addition, it provides a worthwhile course for learners who choose to end their study after AS/Advanced Level.

More about the International Advanced Level in Accounting
 

expand When will the International Advanced Level in Accounting specification be available?

There is no new specification for Accounting. We have simply changed the name of this qualification to International Advanced Level in Accounting. The content and assessment methodology remain exactly the same.

The existing specification, available below in 'Specification', will eventually be updated to reflect the new title but this will only involve updating the cover of the specification.

From September 2013, any student starting Accounting will be awarded an Edexcel International Advanced Level in Accounting rather than an Edexcel GCE A Level in Accounting.
