On section C, the unseen poem, they didn't print the last 14 lines of the poem on 25,0000 papers.

It was on the news and my friend and her parents were being interview and they were ****ing off WJEC big time!

Edexcel, although WJEC's certificates look like they've been printed on scrap paper.

Well, Edexcel really need to start being more considerate - the exams that you have in a day really affect your grades so having P4 and P6 in one afternoon makes cramming sooooooooo much fun. And I felt even more sorry for a friend who had German that morning too.
Worst board though has to be OCR for Chemistry. God knows why school chose that board. The questions are unfair and ambiguous - half of the time the question can be read in different ways so you don't know exactly what they're asking and you can give a perfectly reasonable answer and find that they wanted something else from you and get no marks! Grrrrrrrrrrr OK, so its just me being petty, compared to boards that have mistakes and overlaps etc, but still.

Gotta be EdExcel for me - I'm so glad I didnt have to sit the impossible question they put on the D1 paper the year before mine.

OCR are proberbly second - the general studies papers I took last year looked like they were written for a 5 year old.

Of course - this all might change once i get this years results...

She is a Terry Pratchet fan, though Douglas Adams and JKRowling have the edge.

The only other one not mentioned specifically on the poll is the CCEA (Northern Ireland).

Are there any other boards, else I'll just change "other" to CCEA?

My UCAS booklet for last year notes 5 main exam boards (for Endland and Wales) there are 31 other oganisations which are or have been exam boards recently.

I think thats a bit big for the poll

Actually I haven't got a clue how to edit a poll, so unless anyone else will do it, it'll have to stay the same.
