... For a (mature) external candidate? It's a choice betweeen Edexcel and AQA A. The deciding factor is which one is least onerous (and least costly!) from the point of view of the practical components. Ideally a practical exam like in ye old days so it's 'bish bash bosh'. The worst case scenario is a piece of coursework that drags on for weeks! Which of the above-mentioned two exam boards would you advise? Thanks a million!
