    What do you think is the easiest exam board for those: bio, chemistry maths and psychology for A level (AS and A2)?

    By easy, please specify in what way they are easy. Like amount of content, difficulty of content, style of examination paper, etc?

    I know this depends on the person though as to which exam board you find the easiest.

    Just curious

    Only those subjects please

    Please vote for one choice per subject in the poll (so 4 choices in total) thanks

    AQA Maths is apparently the easiest. I wouldn't know as I haven't done any other exam boards, but my teacher who marks OCR MEI & Edexcel and teaches AQA says so :rolleyes:

    How am I supposed to know? I've only done my subjects on one board each, not several. Sorry.

    From my own experience however, Maths OCR MEI is fine. That's the only one I can comment on.

    And anyway, if there was a particularly easy board, then surely everyone would do it?

    You need to ask this to the teachers really!
    It's very likely we've all only done one exam board.

    WJEC maths is much easier than any other maths board.
    I say that after looking at exam papers from all boards.
