    How similar are the two exam papers? I am doing OCR Gateway but I'm thinking of doing Edexcel Past Papers as well... What do you think?

    Not at all similar. OCR is deemed to be much harder, however I feel like Edexcel is a flop for science, the questions are messy and the specification is all over the place. Don't do past papers for two exam boards, just do you own, chances are it's a different spec with stuff you don't need to know & the questions will most certainly be worded/set out differently. Just stick to your own exam board
