    I only had to deal with Edexcel for Maths and Statistics GCSE. They gave me one mark off an A for maths :mad2:

    I've got Edexcel for DiDA, Maths (which IMO the tests aren't too bad), Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Graphics.
    We always notice a really badly worded question in Science, but obviously there's nothing we can do about it.

    But I don't hate them... I hate AQA for their English course.

    My main problem is with OCR - but I may be prejudiced because I have only ever had them for subjects that I have hated and been forced to take. But the layout of their exams is so wierd! And so basic. The one think that I really like about Edexcel is that the front of their papers are the easiest to fill in! Other than that... Apart from knowing that the GCSEs I took on AQA made my life living hell, but the A levels on Edexcel are better.

    I think all of them have their problems to be honest. :hmmmm2:

    Really? I would say OCR is. Strange.

    We had an issue with our Crit paper and no one knew how to fill it in - even the invigilators - so I don't actually know if my multiple choice paper got marked or not. That's all really... Edexcel just tells you exactly what to put in which box and where you're not allowed to write - I like that kind of organisation. :p:

    Nah, I don't have any particular thoughts on which board is harder, I just get on with it. But when you're worrying about if you've filled in the stupid name section right it's a bit off-putting.

    I agree with everyone else. Although Edexcel (for the most part) can have the easiest exams, they also are really unreliable.

    Mr. Edward Murphy, Government and Politics examiner, I'm pointing my fingers at you. ********.
