Hello, I was just wondering how I should explain this on my French CV? Is there any equivalent in France? Here is the definition from Wikipedia if that helps: In 2008 25.8% of all A level subjects were given an A grade, and there were renewed calls for a better system of differentiation between higher-level candidates to be introduced. The AEAs were introduced in June 2002 as a way of tackling this problem. The Advanced Extension Awards is a type of UK school-leaving qualification. They were introduced in 2002, in response to the British Government's Excellence in Cities report, as a means of testing students at the most demanding standards found across the world. They are aimed at the top 10% of students in the British A Level tests Thanks!
