My year 11 son can choose if he will follow AQA or Exexcel exam board syllabuses. Any advise from those experienced in both?

ooh... I can ask DD later. She just started at a 6thFm where the kids have done one or the other & they compare & contrast what concepts are new in her math/FM A-levels. NobleG can advise too, I imagine.

I love the AQA course and the purple textbook for it is really good. I don’t know the Edexcel course at all, I think it’s an IGCSE.

The AQA one has just been reformed into 9-1, I don’t think the content has actually changed though.

The Edexcel course is an odd one - only 152 candidates sat the exam this year - and only 11 candidates achieved an A* grade. Over 20,000 candidates sat the AQA exam.
