    Hello, I will be soon starting A-levels and I have two colleges I can choose from. One does AQA for chemistry, biology and Physics and the other does WJEC (Eduqas) for chemistry, biology and Physics. So I want to know overall which specification for 2018 exams will be better to study.

    Is WJEC easier than AQA or do you have to put a lot more work to learn? Is there more information overall for AQA than WJEC? Is the exam more fairer to sit? Meaning are the mark schemes better for one exam board than the other.

    BTW I live in England so WJEC is called Eduqas here. Thanks

    I'd go with AQA, since it's far more popular, thus more resources are available for their courses and specifications.

    Is it better still due to the spec changes now
