    Depends on the subject. Most of your subjects will be with either Edexcel, AQA, or OCR, you'll need to check with specific subject teachers. I wouldn't say Edexcel was any better than any of the other exam boards, it's all much of a muchness. They're all respectable examining bodies.

    I've always been taught that Edexcel is regarded as slightly above some other boards, such as AQA. However, I think this is generally for Maths/Sciences whereas OCR are well regarded for languages. Don't necessarily know if this is right (it probably isn't).

    Don't worry too much about what board you are doing - none of the Uni's really care, its just your GCSE & A-Level grades that matter!
