I don't have any on AQA, so I have no idea about them. Edecxel are ok imo, but OCR science is just awful. Their questions are so weirdly worded. I hate WJEC with a burning passion, their English course was dreadful from start to finish- weird questions which screwed everyone over on both language and literature. Tbh I don't know why my school uses them, were literally nowhere near Wales. Though the school is changing to AQA for science and English as of next year, so they've clearly had enough.

Like CCEA for all subjects because their exams are well structured and you can do modules. The exams are always fair (unlike AQA) and grade boundaries are not too high. Best exam board for Science, Geography and Business Studies

WJEC because the history past papers are very hard to find and our school chose sports leisure and tourism to be one of the three units we study most boring thing I have ever had to sit through and learn but it's a unit dependent on own knowledge and basically memorising facts so I like that aspect of it
Also using a Welsh exam board in London? Wtf are they even doing

I mainly only do OCR on my exams, and they're mostly okay. The maths GCSE papers are pretty good and the sciences can be a mixed bag, like the B7 paper yesterday was kinda weird as it didn't really involve the spec so much and even went on to life cycle assessments, which is chemistry... Their chemistry papers so far have been good this year on that note.

AQA maybe for not covering the spec in psychology A-level and repeating questions that had been asked recently ...
