Best and easiest exam boardWatch this thread
Can you let me know which is the easiest exam board for my GCSE exams?
It really depends on the subject though, and what your definition of 'easier' is because they are essentially all the same. That is literally the point.
e.g OCR Music favours coursework (40%) wheras Edexcel music is only 30% coursework and 40% history/theory. As someone who is really good at music theory and only mediocre at composition, I'd find Edexcel more favourable, but not necessarily easier.
another example: OCR History has more papers and more topics than AQA history, but requires less depth on each topic. We switched from OCR to AQA because the History Head of Department thought the new OCR course was ridiculous.
Schools choose and change exam based on the content, and what they think is best for their students. But I repeat, they are the same.
and then AQA is best for media, and probably english as well, but this year they messed up loads of questions and on my books gave questions that weren't in the spec
if you are thinking of doing geography but its WJEC board... DROP IT StRAIGHT AWAY. you probably dont do coursework, but their coursework is ridiculous, in the exam they also mark you for spelling and stuff and they made so many errors it was ridiculous. but i do have to say that apart from that the geog exams were pretty easy
they also have nicer certificates than OCR, so there's that
