Hmm yes. I'm sure OCR has its downfalls, in my case having doing OCR B physics, I can say that it is dissapointing.

I like the fact that doing my OCR exams feels like doing a proper alevel exam and not my SATs again.

Not with OCR Physics though. My teacher has made a rough calculation that you can achieve around 60-70% of teh exam wiothout any real physics knowledge. It is that bad.

I have to say that aqa ones are the best layout, and with less mistakes than edexcels. I have seen some shocking mark schemes, giving credit where it is not true, and not giving credit where it is due. But having said that we are just playing the "game" of exams.

Yes. I've heard they're awful in physics before.

For maths they're really quite good though.

OCR's my favourite one! Well, at lease for GCSE it was. OCR GCSE History was so great and so easy it was unbelivable! I didn't like the OCR chemistry paper though because it was packed full of stupid equations. And it was pink! Which just put me off
