    I have a problem,

    I'm starting my A Levels next year and one of the subjects I'm going to study is Chemistry. I'm most likely to move to a college next year, but the problem is that their Chemistry exam board is OCR B Salters, which ive heard a bit about and apparently its not a popular course.

    At my schools sixth form the exam board is Edexcel.

    So I'm just interested in what the opinions are of those of you who have done the
    OCR B course. Is it really that bad, bad enough for me to stay at my current school for!?


    I do the Edexcel course and it's not that bad. I've heard that OCR are a bloody nightmare, so I'd definitely recommend doing it with Edexcel.

    Plus, Unit 3 and Unit 6 are practical units worth 60 marks each - counting to 10% of the qualification each. Easy marks.
