My friend is now taking english(ielts), maths, physics, further maths, n economics.

Correct me if i am wrong.
I don't think so as you can choose whatever subjects that you like and it caters to your specialisation.

I think u misunderstand me.

He(my friend) chooses all subjects himself(english & maths compulsary),

but related 2 the field he studies
n is he a jpa scholar?

No that is not true. The syllabus differs abit only. But it is much easier to resit the exam for Edexcel compared to Cambridge.

Actually there are JPA scholars who are required to take 4 subjects in A-Level, Bio, Phy, Math and Chem. Somehow, most pre-medic students don't do extremely well in Physics.

The Edexcel is modular system which I think is easier as the students only study a particular chapters before going to the exam and not studying everything all at one go.

IELTS doesn't count as an A-Levels subject...

The Edexcel is modular system which I think is easier as the students only study a particular chapters before going to the exam and not studying everything all at one go.
The modular system may seem so but the final paper (Unit 6 / Synoptics) will cover everything from Units1-5 so you still need to know all the stuff from the very start of your course... Plus, in subjects like Physics, the Unit 6 paper is quite different as you'll be given scientific articles to analyse (e.g. come up with your own formula and explanation based on real research stuff), so it's not all that direct either...
