Dilute vs aqueous a level chemistry ocr

Hi there I was wondering if I use the word aqueous at A level instead of dilute if it will make any difference. Is there a significant difference between the two or will it not really matter in exams. Many thanks.
Well they are two completely different words so I think it does matter:

Aqueous - a solution in which the solvent is water

Dilute - a solution containing a relatively small quantity of solute as compared with the amount of solvent
