OCR isn't too bad for Biology compared to AQA in my experience, I've heard AQA is the best for Psychology but I don't know that one personally.

Why is it better than AQA biology? In terms of what?

Edexcel SNAB for Biology.
Trust me, this year's AS papers were a blessing - Godsend after last year's papers (last year was the first year of the new spec).

Don't do psychology but probably AQA. Not sure about Edexcel Psychology.

MentalHealthN - Regarding Edexcel Bio, there are 2 exam specs.
Edexcel SNAB (Salters-Nuffield A Biology) and Edexcel B (spec B).

I do SNAB and I found it pretty good, I would defo recommend it. Have a look at the spec and papers. If you sat AS this year with SNAB and worked hard, it's a walk in the park, because this year, AS papers were easier as last year the A grade you needed 54% on average only from 2 years. Reckon its gunna be much higher this year!

To be honest that's kinda the problem with picking exam boards. Most will be easy or hard varying by year, you know? They're A Levels. No matter which you sign up with it's still gonna be a brutal 2 years, to the extent that really it's negligible what board you're on.

I agree with MedicaAutomata - it varies year by year. From what I've heard and my experience, go with Edexcel SNAB.

I do edexcel snab biology and I sat my A2 exams in the new spec this year. Yeah last years AS exams were really hard i came out thinking i'd be lucky to get a D, they seem to have learnt through their mistakes though as this years A2 exams were not as bad! In terms of the course it's really well done, really in-depth and easy to understand, the textbooks are great!
