Hi. I teach AQA A-level and we get students who have done OCR, AQA and Edexcel GCSE chemistry. It makes no difference. You might find the odd topic is carried out in a bit more detail by one of the exam boards than the others, but really... no difference.

Hope you enjoy your A-level studies, Good luck!

OCR is usually harder than AQA, so already studying OCR at GCSE sets you up well. OCR is more content based across most subjects so it focuses on detail whereas AQA focuses on application of knowledge. In my experience, anyway.
