    AQA, OCR, and Edexcel offer A-level Computing. I am planning to start soon and I was reading over the specs for the course. The modules are named differently. Are the three exam boards teach the same thing in the modules?

    The modules for the exam boards are as follows:

    AQA

    Module 1 - computer systems, programming, network concepts (written exam)
    Module 2 - principles of hardware, software and applications (written exam)
    Module 3 - practical systems development (pre-relase mateial with system development)
    Module 4 - processing and programming techniques (written exam)
    Module 5 - advanced system development (written exam)
    Module 6 - the practical project (coursework)


    OCR

    Module 1 - introductory computer systems, communications and software (written exam)
    Module 2 - structured programming task (pre-release material)
    Module 3 - computer systems development and practical applications (written exam)
    Module 4 - system software mechanisms, machine architecture, database theory, and programming padigms (written exam)
    Module 5 - computing project (coursework)
    Module 6 - integrated information systems (written exam)

    Edexcel

    Module 1 - computer systems (written exam)
    Module 2 - design and organisation of information systems (written exam)
    Module 3 - system design and dvelopment project (coursework)
    Module 4 - computer systems design (written exam)
    Module 5 - information systems development (written exam)
    Module 6 - software design and development project (coursework)




    I can't find similarity to these modules. Do you think all these exam boards and modules teach the same stuff?
