    I used to do OCR A for Chemistry and Physics and now changed to Edexcel for all of the Sciences and heard that Edexcel is the hardest exam board. Is this true because I thought pretty much all exam boards will have similar difficulty.

    They pretty much do.

    Wouldn't say Edexcel's the hardest though. Half their papers get leaked lol

    Oh right. Never knew that, but then again it's not like you'll get the answers. A really good teacher said that he thinks Edexcel is the hardest.

    OCR is quite tough. OCR MEI for maths is the hardest for maths by a country mile and most private schools tend to take OCR or Cambridge exam board exams as well

    I'm really glad that I don't do OCR MEI for Maths and OCR for Sciences anymore. That's a good thing that I have a different exam board lol.
