Generally speaking, AQA is considered to be the easiest of those two exam boards, so this should also be the case in Mathematics. My school uses Edexcel for GCSE mathematics and it's quite difficult, but when I see the work that friends from other schools do with AQA, the AQA material doesn't seem that difficult. Looking at the AQA documents, they seem easier. If Edexcel documents are difficult but you only need 50% to approve them, AQA documents are easier, but you need 70% to approve them (fully composed numbers), then you need to keep that in mind.
My teacher says Edexcel has tougher questions but a more lenient grading scheme than AQA. AQAit titles are taught in 44 countries around the world. AQA is the largest of the three English test boards, with students taking more than 3.5 million tests with AQA each year, including 49 percent of the GCSE and 42 percent of the A-Levels. The executive director of AQA is Andrew Hall.
My school does Edexcel for GCSE, OCR for retrievals and AQA for additional math That a school is moving from Edexcel to AQA presumably because the papers seem to be easier is going to be a big headache for Ofqual because we've been through all of this 2 years ago. Both Edexcel and AQA have their non-calculating role as paper 1, while OCR differs by placing non-calculator paper in the middle of the series. I was looking at the top level of both papers 1 and it's just me or the role of edexcel is considerably more difficult than the role of aqa. I was a little surprised that the grade limits were also similar, even though the required math level was very different.
Edexcel provides exam practice support by presenting your questions in a variety of ways, such as by subject and scaffolding levels, as seen in its gold, silver, and bronze documents. Last year, it took 184 points (61%) to obtain an A grade at Edexcel mathematics level, while for the OCR score in the subject, the required grade was 197 (66%). All examining boards state that papers increase in difficulty in terms of content and language as work progresses, but one notable difference with AQA is the presence of multiple-choice questions at the beginning. Having reviewed both Paper 2 this year, I know which meeting I would have preferred to sit at: AQA.
Subtle differences: The content is the same, but AQA feels that the questions are easier to answer. The style is cleaner, some are multiple-choice (for no reason other than to save money on markers, Edexcel made a multiple-choice paper a few years ago but scrapped it because mathematically it didn't work). AQA celebrates the diversity of mathematics and aims to equip students with the right skills for their destination. I just reviewed the exam boards listed for the dd subjects and practically all of them are AQA with the exception of mathematics, history and science.
Unfortunately, Edexcel's jobs were very difficult and this has caused problems for many students. While these questions are predominantly for the OCR and Edexcel exam boards, due to the fact that all exam boards must now broadly examine the same content, they are useful when preparing for the A Level math exams on the four exam boards: OCR, OCR MEI, Edexcel and AQA. Key Differences AQA papers have the same weighting, which puts less pressure on students to perform better in one than the other.
