    who said edexcel was hard?

    I do both biology and chemistry with edexcel and to be honest its very very straight forward.

    i do OCR, subsequently i can only give a different opinion to nadine but i would hazard a guess and say neither is overly tough as long as your prepared to put the work in!! as to which exam board is harder, i guess this is subjective, but both exam boards will be pretty equal as they'll both have to meet predetermined standards!

    cheers

    Salters is a version of OCR.
    It's from the University of York. Supposedly a specially developed, very practical approach but it's incredibly confusing and very "applied" (therefore exam questions make no sense =D)

    cambridge is DEFINATELY harder.in case of edexcel,the course is conscise and cambridge syllabus is way too much detailed and ofcourse tougher..but i do think cambridge is better bec it will help later in med school.

    I'm not sure this is true- I'm taking OCR (not Salters) and the edexcel books and the syllabus looks harder to me. Loads more detail- but maybe it's just the way the books are written.

    Not even going NEAR edexcel further maths.
    Normal maths is confusing enough =D

    Did you understand what he/she was trying to say? Does it really matter?

    And unintendedly, I'll have a look at it for you :)
