I do Edexcel and find it quite easy. The content is concise and the textbooks are nice. The exams are also not that difficult. They do checklists for each topic test and as long as you make notes on each point (and answering the easy textbook questions for the topic) you can easily get 30- full marks without learning irrelevant info.

To make a decision you should download the exam papers from each board and look at the exam format and syllabus content of what you would study.
I highly doubt your class will do any research.

Could you give me any indication why in terms of content and question easiness. Also, can you give me advice on any textbooks/revision guides.

AQA, most people do it so you'll be able to find more revision resources for it.

AQA is the most widely used as far as I'm aware. This means that a lot more of the revision resources will be based on the AQA specification. My personal favourite revision resources (for example, Freesciencelessons) do use AQA. With this in mind, I'd definitely suggest AQA.

That being said, however, I don't know why your teacher is giving a group of year 9s who likely don't know what they'd be getting themselves into and probably have no idea what each exam board would entail/what would be best suited to your learning. That, in my opinion, is slightly irresponsible of her. However, you asked which exam board, so to answer your question, definitely AQA
