    I am 22 years old and need to study A2 Level Biology to get into uni for my course (dental therapy & hygiene).

    I wanted to know the differences between OCR/AQA/Edexcel exam boards? And which one would be the best to take being an older, self taught student?

    Also, has anyone else studied A level biology who is older and can give me any advice on how to self teach?

    Thanks!

    Im studying AQA at the moment and the difference isnt much, just the specifications may be a little different (i.e. what they say you actually have to teach)

    Also the style of questions are a bit different obviously but nothing major at all

    Why not go onto all the websites and look for a unit 1 exam paper and have a look through them to see what they are like and maybe even look at the chapters/units for each exam board.

    Hope this helped a little!
