    All OCR apart from:

    Science+ Food= AQA
    Geography= Edexcel

    I'm with WJEC for everything apart from double science (AQA) and citizenship (OCR).

    Re: WJEC being an easy exam board
    My WJEC exams have been comparable to my AQA exam and, frankly, much harder than my OCR exam (though I suspect that is more to do with the subject than the examining body).

    I'm inclined to think all of the exam boards are comparable in their level of difficulty.
