Which exam board is best for alevels mathsWatch
I have 2 sixth form in mind , and I plan to hopefully do alevels maths and biology and chemistry. I am predicted around an 8 in maths. One of the sixth forms do edexcel maths (50% got an A-A* in 2020)and the other do OCR(70%got an A/A* in 2019) however one thing that worries me is that some people say edexcel is easier then OCR as you can prepare more easily for the edexcel as you know the topics for the C3 C4 examinations so i just wanted to know in your opinions if I should let the fact of the maths exam boards affect which sixth form I go too and if either ones exams are easier for students who a little less confident in maths many thanks .
In terms of choosing sixth form based on this. DON'T. Go with the sixth form that makes you feel more comfortable. You also need to consider reputation for teaching and behaviour of other students in the school, equipment and facilities and maybe people that you know that are going there. Don't let this be a deciding factor though as I ended up going to a sixth form with none of my friends because all the other factors were better than the school that my friends ended up going to and I am perfectly happy where I am
Oh right so there really isn’t a difference in difficulty between each of the exam boards, I only thought that as my cousin told me it was easier to prepare for c3 and c4 as you know which exact topics for each exam you know you will be asked on
