    The sixth form college I am at now does AQA a level maths However, even though everything is straight forward, I don't actually like the exam board and I prefer Edexcel because of the exam structure. Is this a good enough reason to move? Should I stick it out?

    Yeah in some ways, I feel like Edexcel is slightly easier than AQA TBH.

    Yes I have another sixth form lined up, they told me to email them my GCSE grades.

    What do you think?

    Its really your decision. If it was me I would be doing a detailed pros and cons.

    Distance from school, how friendly, quality of teaching etc.

    Go to the place where you think you will get the best grades. feeling slightly easier doesnt sound like much. Your choice.

    I think it's too late in the year to be pissing about with this nonsense. What about your other subjects??

    No exam board is (I think) is easier considering it's A-Level all of my subjects have had to switch exam boards also. Just a suggestion but is it because your used to that one particular style of exam??

    So you're quite happy to move to another sixth form and cause inconvenience to your other subjects for the sake of an "easier" exam board (which honestly, is a bit of BS; the content is the same)????

    Hi

    It depends on the college you want to move to. Is it a better college? If so it might be worth it.

    I mean yes and No in a way. It means that if I was to move there, there will Ben no freendom as such because it Is a stricter sixth form.

    Stricter can be a good thing. If you like that idea and are organised and willing to work hard it might not be a bad idea.
