    In my opinion, it's WJEC or OCR
    I have WJEC for English and OCR for maths and history. Both very good exam boards.
    AQA, especially in Science I feel, is very frustrating at times and I really don't like the quality of edexcel papers.

    AQA seems good for languages and stuff while OCR is good for maths and edexcel for science although those are the only way I've been exposed to these exams boards. One of the reasons that would turn me off doing bio at the sixth form I'm going to is that it's aqa and the other sciences are ocr or edexcel- I can't quite remember.

    AQA/Edexcel ...they r the only 2 exam boards I do.

    AQA at times can be quite ...but I guess their okay. Edexcel seems better for English, Maths and Chinese.

    This is in the GCSE subforum, so probably not.

    I've only had AQA and OCR, but I much prefer AQA.

    AQA seems to make it more obvious what they actually want from you in the exam - look at the science specifications for example, they have clear bullet points outlining what you need.

    But OCR seems to be a lot more ambiguous in their specifications (at least for Computing anyway) and so a lot of the time I never know if the stuff I am learning is specifically on the spec or not which can be annoying and lead you to miss stuff out when revising

    Also, OCR still haven't released their 2015 papers

    AQA and OCR are the best.
