Is it better to choose CIE or Edexcel for international AS and A2? Im planning to take biology, chemistry, maths (and maybe physics). What are the differences between them in terms of exam style, syllabus and difficulty? Plus, which has more resources (more convenient to study)? Is it true that the new specifications in edexcel are harder so should i choose CIE instead?

In my experience edexcel has always been the easier exam board. CIE are pretty content heavy, particularly for biology... and my boyfriend finds CIE maths much harder than edexcel maths. CIE tend to have more practical exams in the sciences aswell.
