What do you think is the easiest exam board?

I've been told it's WJEC and that OCR is by far the worst but I only do WJEC so I really have no comparison

I would say WJEC as well but the AS maths papers were incredibly hard this year, harder than all previous years so I'm not sure anymore. Especially as we only moved to wjec as it was easy and then it was a massive mistake.
I think previously I would say WJEC easiest and OCR is hardest I believe but it might change with coming years/person by person :smile:
As another WJEC exam board a lot of people say we’re easier I think because we have lower grade boundaries usually. But we also have 0 resources. There are like no YT channels or textbooks or companies doing tuition for WJEC. So although I don’t know if our content or exams are necessarily harder, our educational resources are which is probably why wales is the lowest performing academically in the uk. WJEC needs to shape up

The as maths papers were hell 😭 I think WJEC is trying to prove everyone who said they were too nice in wales wrong, like don’t make the papers harder just raise the boundaries and give us more resources!!

Yes exactly! I found that the most annoying part was the fact that there was no resources! I couldn't find anything except aqa.

The funny thing was we moved to wjec specifically for the easy grades and then we got taught for an easy exam and we are all not happy at all. If we get a U in any of our subjects as well we are out of sixth form and a levels all together. No second chances

Jeez that's harsh. I think the boundaries will be very low this year though so I'd say it'd be hard to get a U unless you barely answered anything.

We're all really hoping so as it was so hard and none of us want to leave sixth form..
To add to the question, do you think everyone knows this and that universities or employers take it into consideration when looking at results?
