What is the point of doing OCR MEI?Watch
So what is the point of doing MEI? Do university consider it differently?
Some people are masochists. Some people really, really enjoy mathematics. Some people are masochistic and enjoy mathematics.
But, OP, as far as I'm aware, I don't think universities will discriminate between exam boards.
and in Core 4 20% of the grade is a comprehension paper where you read an extract and answer some very basic general maths questions - getting you some more very easy marks! Great.
I've also done all the regular OCR papers as practice and to me there really isn't any significant difference in difficulty of the rest of the content between the two boards.
However, my opinion is biased since I haven't taken any other exam boards. Although, if I had the opporunity to take edexcel I would, since it is probably so much easier.
It probably is a well recognised exam board, but what is better, an A* on edexcel board or a lower grade on the MEI exam board? I doubt any but the top universities actually discriminate by exam boards.
