    They all (OCR Eduqas Edexcel AQA) look to be very close now, does anyone have a preference?
    Btec is on the list too.
    If you think it might make a difference, it's an all-girls school where out of 250 doing A levels, there is ONE doing physics. Bless her cotton socks!
    There has been no course like CDT, so the school doesn't have any hand or powered tools at all; we'll have to set up something of a workshop. As far as I can see so far, there aren't stipulations about what facilities the school has to provide, but again it looks as though they'd all be about the same.
    I have found no list - suggestions welcomed.

    This is obviously new to the school and will need a specialist teacher, so quality and reliability of teaching materials is extra important.
    So far I'm feeling pro Edexcel GCSE (not Btec), anti Eduqas.
