    You must do what you think is best. I find sticking with one board to be the best way forward as you get to know the question types, favoured vocab and if you can attend any, the INSET provided in a location which is convenient for you.

    That's been standard practice across the boards for some years - possibly since the the start of GCSE (can't remember that far back now).
     
  3. The reading and listening papers are, in my opinion, poorly set out.
    Many questions lack visual clues which you get on AQA papers (ie. a picture of an African girl when the text is about a school in Senegal or a picture of a guy next to a passage about football). While a picture won't help a candidate know any more French, it gives the questions a more accessible appearence. The question papers just "look" difficult.
    Also, I find their last few questions much harder than the AQA equivalents.
    Tis just my opinion.
