Hey everyone,

Having looked at this and taking part in the online introductory seminar, I am tempted to change from Edexcel. Oxford's spec looks much more clear-cut and less ambiguous with universal relevance. There is also no minimum requirement for maths (like the 10% in Edexcel) and the students don't have to be able to calculate statistical tests.

Does anyone have any thoughts or advice?

Thanks, 

Jo

Not seen it but may look - what are the funding implications for it and does it count of performance measures the same as the standard A-levels?

I have been thinking about it for next year. The headmistress seems keen to switch.
