I am currently studying A Level Biology and Chemistry; both on the OCR exam board, and I have heard from one of my friends, who is now studying AQA A Level Biology, that AQA content is much easier than OCR content for A Level Biology; which he was with prior to switching.
At GCSE I was able to score 9, 9, 8 across the Sciences (AQA), but I am now finding it much harder to score A's in Biology, and Chemistry, with the OCR exam board, (acknowledging that it is meant to be harder than GCSE anyway, because it is A Level) and I am wondering whether it would be (significantly) easier to score A's/A*'s if I were studying AQA A Level Biology and Chemistry instead of OCR A Level Biology and Chemistry, due to the said difference in the difficultly to learn the content and the way in which it's tested, across both exam boards.

Ofqual ensures that all A levels approved for teaching in England in the same subject are of comparable difficulty. There will be differences in approach and one might suit you more than another but, on average, they are equally hard
