AQA or Edexcel GCSE?

Discussion in 'Art and design' started by JesstarB, Jun 5, 2011.

  1. Having worked with both exam boards (as teacher and moderator) both have their flaws but I would opt for Edexcel over and above AQA every time, AQA have a very old fashioned view, Edexcel are more forward thinking and their assessment and moderation process is simple and straightforward! Also they respect the fact that you are the client and are paying for their services, AQA seem to think they are the ones doing you a favour!
  2. i agree, not enough support from AQA this year, too vague.
  3. Anyone have any views on where OCR fir into the picture?

    Thanks everyone, seems quite clear from your views, Edexcel it is. I have to say the Btec mods were not always the most friendly and have been a bit contradictory about paperwork requirements but for GCSE they do sound better.
