    I've done OCR and AQA. OCR is good in the sense that for your practical assessments you are able to take each one up to 3 times and take your best mark, however OCR like to mess with your head a bit - some years they will ask the same/similar questions but have different mark schemes so it isn't easy to get the marks.
    AQA like to ask completely off topic questions and also mess you up with mark scheme differences.

    Overall I preferred OCR but my school have just switched to AQA because a lot of students didn't do as well with OCR and had to retake (although this could have just been affected by those three year groups).

    New OCR exam is littered with a few problems. This mainly relates to the textbook which they have provided, which on several occasions is just downright wrong. Although, i imagine all the other courses would also be struggling with this due to the news specifications.
