    I have always wanted to be on Edexcel for a level maths, but 3 weeks ago I found it I am on AQA at my new sixth form college. I know this is a minor thing but should I really be bothered about it? I just wanted to be in Edexcel...

    No university/employer will care which exam board you did. They just care about your subject and grade.

    generally speaking edexcel for maths is easier than other boards, therefore boundaries r often higher so it is harder to get the higher grades, if your someone who makes a lot of silly mistakes
