    1) Your teacher is an a**hole.

    2) I'm not even sure if that is allowed. You should really talk to your headmaster about it and explain that your teacher shouldn't be switching courses around this close to exams.

    3) I'm not personally in WJEC or any other exam type other than GCSE AQA. There is a class below me that takes the WJEC course, and there are quite some significant differences.

    The WJEC course, as far as I'm aware, does alot less complicated work, to put it bluntly. The AQA Course covers Computational Systems, Electronics on a smaller scale and focuses on programming. AQA also takes 3 examinations in total (2 Written Papers, 1 Controlled Assessment).

    Glad if I could help!
