We have just changed from Edexcel to AQA mid-course, based on advice from other local schools. AQA may be as you say, but the negligence, incompetence and general attitude of contempt for our students as human beings I have experienced at Edexcel disgusts me. How their failure to properly mark our children's work is not grounds for legal redress defeats me, but I have sat opposite an examiner, pointed out what they have missed in my students' scripts, and just been ignored with a smug smile. That'll be another £9000, please! Still, in the interest of balance, they did send me a nice drinks coaster and a pen.
