I plan on sitting AS/A2 Maths, Politics and Economics privately in January/June of 2013 with a view to apply to University in September 2013.
Before I left school I'd only just completed some of my GCSE's, however I did notice a considerable difference in the specifications between my maths exam board (AQA) and other exam boards (e.g. OCR).
AS/A2 Maths seems to be be pretty standardized, with 4 core units and 2 optionals under both edexcel and OCR (I assume the same with other exam boards too) - is this something that carries across most subjects (as aside from this - availability of resources, I can't really see any reason to pick one exam board over another)?
Any answers or advice would be greatly appreciated !!
