    Just wondering whats the best exam board for A level Math?
    Edexcel or AQA (heard OCR isn't that good)
    and by 'best' I mean easiest question types in exams because i'm sure you learn the same amount for each board pretty much.
    Also I done Edexcel Math GCSE if that changes anything?

    Edexcel if you want to see the paper before you do it. Shocking exam board.

    OCR and OCR MEI are probably the tougher exam boards

    There's absolutely no difference to the content as it is 100% prescribed. There are differences in the lengths of the exams and the way the questions are organised and you can investigate these differences by visiting the Awarding Body websites (AQA, OCR, OCR MEI and Edexcel). in most cases, you will not be given a choice, you will just do whichever qualification your school or college chooses. This may not apply if you are a Private Candidate.
