Edexcel still probably the easiest due to abundance of resources. From what I've seen AQA is pretty easy also

I tried a few chapters from different modules in AQA and they were easier than Edexcel's equivalents

Though saying that, most of Edexcel is pretty good

i am doing edexcel maths
edexcel c1 and c2 are not hard
i finished m1 s1 fp1 c1 c2 and currently finishing s2 but personally i don't think they are hard, but i am not sure about other exam boards,
i am not sure how easy or difficult the other modules would be (i.e. m3-m5, fp3, S3-s4 )
i would recomment edexcel because the are lot of resources, so you can revise for the exam properly

Really? Comparing AQA's C1 to WJEC's C1, I think that wjec is quite a bit easier.

Lol i did C1 and C2 last year they were on par as every other paper i got an A for both. The only part which was hard was plugging a gradient into dy/dx. Stick with edexcel. They've got loads of resources and most likely going to make the paper easier since people found it hard last year.

Which do you reckon is easier, s1/s2, m1/m2 or d1/d2?

This year Im doing C3. C4, and M1. I think S1 is easiest for most people but personally for me it's M1 even though most people find it difficult. Also thanks for the rep, chum!

Haven't tried other exam boards but got like full UMS in all my modules for Edexcel, used examsolutions which helped a ton.

AQA.
My school changed from Edexcel to AQA for the reason that Edexcel papers are getting harder.
The questions are all similar if you go through all the past papers. No nasty surprises.
Well yet anyway

We offer any combination so S1/M1 or S1/D1 are probably the most common choices. S1 is tedious but not difficult.

All boards are different and I don't think there is one that is easier than the others as you need to consider the mark schemes and grade boundaries, not just the papers.

I'd take Edexcel purely because there are so many resources online.

All boards are roughly the same. Just stay away from OCR, MEI and CIE. I think TeeEm will agree with that.
