I'm pretty certain AQA is more popular, but I can't find the link to prove it.

I think AQA has very similar content to Edexcel. But the speaking cards for Edexcel look soo much better than aqa since they are shorter. With aqa it’s really difficult to read through both photo cards, pick one and then answer all 3 questions in 5 mins . It’s doable but the Edexcel speaking exam appealed more to me . The exams are mainly the same anyway .

Thanks for the replies!
I heard that one Edexcel was more focused on language and AQA more on culture and literature? Is that true?

They both have to comply with Ofqual's requirements so there isn't going to be a huge difference but I don't know more than that.

You're welcome ! I would say perhaps its the other way round. I mean I did AQA but always compared it to edexcel and think that AQA focus on language more whilst Edexcel is more content heavy. Thats just what I think tho

Hmmmm interesting! I'm almost fluent in Spanish so am keen to do the one heavy on language which would be to my advantage.

Wow that’s great ! 7 months ? It does seem like a short amount of time to do a lot of work. I mean if you haven’t got any other subjects to study for and you can solely focus on Spanish then I would say it’s definitely possible to get a good grade but you’d probably have to study quite intensely as it’s not just about knowing the language but undertaking a research project, studying 2 books or 1 book and film in addition to revising content for the exam .
