Hi. I just finished my IGCSE's and I'm about to start my A levels.
I wanted to ask ; is there any difference between Edexcel and CIE ?
Lets say I want to go to Cambridge ... will Cambridge except Edexcel results ( assume I get A's).
Is there any difference in recognition between Cambridge and Edexcel i.e. am I more likely to get into Cambridge if I did CIE ?

What about US University's ; does the exam board I sit affect my chances ?

Quite simply- no.

Each and every exam board are pretty much the same- your results will be accepted under any of the exam boards.

It doesn't particulary matter if one test with one board is easier because the grade boundaries are set by the results- say most people acieved higher than they had expected the board will and should be more stingent on the grade boundaries- raising them with the results.

So no, nothing to fear!
