    They should all be the same level.

    imo WJEC has the better website, but AQA will have more revision books for the spec.

    Think about the way in which you are assessed as well. The WJEC/Eduqas specification is broken down into smaller style questions so if you make an error you do not risk losing 25 marks like in the AQA papers which are largely larger mark responses. There are plenty of websites out there too which provide help for both options. Tutor2U, S-Cool, Teachingbusiness and BusinessEd should provide you with a flavour of both. Remember that there are other specs too like OCR and Edexcel or even CIE.

    I seem to endlessly see complaints from WJEC students about the lack of official text books and other resources. I suggest you check into to that as resources will be critical for an independent learner.

    I agree but some of the sites I mentioned do actually have good notes like Teachingbusiness. Also the lack of a textbook can also have benefits as it encourages you to draw more upon real world experiences.
